Stefon Diggs was rightfully pissed off this weekend, but he went about it the wrong way.
The Buffalo Bills wide receiver let his frustrations show during Sunday’s divisional round loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, vocalizing that to quarterback Josh Allen late in the fourth quarter.
Reports soon surfaced that he would storm out of the locker room immediately after the game. After being called out about it, he would take to Twitter and speak on his actions.

Bills head coach Sean McDermott was asked after the game about Diggs’ rush to leave the stadium:
“He’s a competitive guy and that’s what makes him good, is what you saw. He’s very competitive, like we all are. We work extremely hard at these jobs to be the best we can possibly be and it hurts. I wouldn’t want a guy that it doesn’t hurt,” McDermott said during his postgame presser.
“He put it all on the line out there. We put it all out on the line and tonight it wasn’t good enough and that’s the part that stings.”
In the loss to the Bengals, Diggs caught 4 of 11 passes for 35 yards. In the second half, he had one reception for 8 yards on five targets.
Buffalo became the first preseason title favorite to not reach a conference championship game since the Seattle Seahawks in 2015.
The Bengals, however, return to the AFC Championship for the second consecutive year for the first time in franchise history after a 27-10 rout of the former Super Bowl favorites.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
