Before the Sunday Night game even began, the back-and-forth between Bills star receiver Stefon Diggs and Packers corner Jaire Alexander started as cameras caught them both jawing at each other as they ran out of the tunnel.
After the game, Alexander revealed to reporters what he said to Diggs.
Saying, “I was just keeping it real with him. I told him he couldn’t mess with me and he a little boy. That’s all that was. Just being honest, that’s all I can do.”
The Buffalo Bills were expected to win and they did just that as they walked away with a 27-17 victory.
As for as Diggs is concerned, he really didn’t care who started the beef, only that he was the one who finished it.
“I don’t give a f— who started it, I finished it. I got the win,” Diggs said after the 27-17 victory. “I don’t deal with moral victories. I don’t deal with one-on-one battles because it’s not a one-on-one game. … It’s a team effort, and I got a dub. I feel like at the end of the day there are no moral victories.”
Alexander was told of that quote after the game, and replied, “Nah, I don’t either. I finished it.”
The Packers came out different during this game as they ran the ball way more than throwing it. It seemed as if they were trying to keep Josh Allen off the ifled as much as possible, but it ultimately did not work.
Allen finished the day completing 13 of his 25 passes for 213 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions. He also ran for 49 yards on six carries.
Rodgers threw for 203 yards and two TDs with an INT. Rodgers has been held to 260 or fewer passing yards in all eight games in 2022. The Green Bay Packers lost their fourth consecutive game to fall to 3-5, their worst start under Aaron Rodgers.
The Vikings are 6-1 after their fifth straight victory and are currently running away with the division.
