VIDEO: Stefon Diggs stays on field to watch Chiefs’ trophy ceremony after AFC Championship game

No one would have faulted Stefon Diggs if he went with the rest of his teammates back to the locker room after the game. However, the All-Pro receiver will likely keep that mental image in his head as motivation for next season. Bills cornerback Josh Norman and head coach Sean McDermott were also reportedly on the sidelines at the time, but it was Diggs who stood out the most.
Led by the brilliance of QB Josh Allen, the Bills had one of the most exciting offenses in the NFL this season. They came extremely close to that coveted Super Bowl berth but stumbled upon a roadblock in the form of the reigning Super Bowl Champions.
Stefon Diggs, meanwhile, had a successful first season in Buffalo after four years with the Minnesota Vikings. He led the NFL in receptions and receiving yards this season.
