Stefon Diggs ignited the crowd at Highmark Stadium on Sunday with an electrifying performance, showering the Buffalo Bills’ faithful with beer after scoring his first touchdown in a game against the Miami Dolphins. The Bills went on to dominate the game, winning 48-20.
Diggs’ first touchdown came in the first half, with 10:02 remaining, when he caught an 11-yard pass from quarterback Josh Allen. In celebration, Diggs sprinted towards the enthusiastic Bills Mafia and dramatically collided two beer cans together, resulting in a frothy cascade of alcohol that drenched the fans, his teammates, and even the CBS cameras.
However, that was just the beginning of Diggs’ remarkable day.
In the same quarter, Diggs ran a deep curl route, evaded a Dolphins defender, and broke free for a spectacular 55-yard touchdown. This extended Buffalo’s lead to 28-14, and they entered halftime with a commanding 31-14 advantage.
The second half saw Diggs continuing his impressive performance.
Late in the third quarter, Allen connected with Diggs for a 13-yard touchdown, marking the wide receiver’s third touchdown of the game and his first three-touchdown game since September 19 against the Tennessee Titans.
By the end of the game, Stefon Diggs had accumulated six receptions for 120 yards and three touchdowns. Josh Allen had a stellar performance as well, with 320 passing yards, four touchdown passes, and one rushing touchdown. His fourth touchdown pass was caught by Gabe Davis.
Despite the Miami Dolphins’ offensive outburst the previous week when they scored 70 points against the Denver Broncos and a solid defensive performance, they couldn’t find an answer against the Bills.
Tua Tagovailoa had a respectable outing, going 25-for-35 with 282 passing yards, throwing one touchdown pass to Braxton Berrios and rushing for one touchdown himself.
De’Von Archane continued to excel in the ground game, rushing for 101 yards on eight carries and scoring two touchdowns.
With this victory, the Buffalo Bills improved their record to 3-1, while the Miami Dolphins dropped to 3-1 as well.
