After the Buffalo Bills fell 27-10 at home to the Cincinnati Bengals in the snow Sunday, at least one Bills’ player showed some emotion in an unusual way. With it being the Bengals moving on to the AFC Championship Game rather than the Bills, Buffalo receiver Stefon Diggs was upset. And, according to The Athletic Bills’ reporter Joe Buscaglia, Diggs initially tried to leave the stadium before some of the coaches even reached the locker room:

This came after video of Diggs yelling at Buffalo quarterback Josh Allen on the sideline took off:

Both of those occurrences drew some comment:

But Bills’ head coach Sean McDermott was diplomatic in his own comments on Diggs:

And Allen was conciliatory towards Diggs in answering a question about the sideline exchange:

Diggs (seen at top during this game) had 108 receptions for a team-high 1,429 yards (fifth in the league) and 11 touchdowns this season. In this snowy playoff game against the Bengals, though, he was only targeted 10 times and only wound up with four catches for 35 yards.

We’ll see if there’s any further fallout that comes from Diggs’ actions here. There was some talk about the team possibly trading him this past offseason, but they instead signed him to a four-year, $104-million extension through 2027.
