Bills star Stefon Diggs opens up about his actions after loss to Bengals
After the Buffalo Bills’ disappointing divisional-round home loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, the bulk of scrutiny laid on star wide receiver Stefon Diggs’ actions.
Diggs reported headed to the locker room before the team and left before his teammates and coaches reached the location. He was then retrieved by running back Duke Johnson, but then shortly thereafter left the locker room again.
Since then, Diggs has received much criticism for his actions. It didn’t take long for the star wideout to respond via Twitter.
“Want me to be okay with losing? Nah,” Diggs tweeted. “Want me to be okay with our level of play when it’s not up to the standard? Nah.”
Diggs clearly was upset and disappointed with his team’s playoff shortcomings, falling short again of another Super Bowl push. Before the 2022 season, the Bills were labeled as the favorites to hoist the Vince Lombardi trophy.

Instead, the Bills struggled mightily at home against the Bengals in a convincing lopsided loss. Head coach Sean McDermott discussed the situation but kept much of the matter private.
“Stef’s a highly competitive individual, as we all know, and that’s part of the reason why we all love him,” McDermott said via ESPN. “And he’s frustrated, like we all are. He was in today, and he and I spoke, and I’ll leave it at that.”
Diggs’ actions shouldn’t impact his future in Buffalo, but rather it underlines the need for change within the franchise to finally push toward Super Bowl contention.
