Vikings receiver Stefon Diggs is a little-known rookie fifth-round draft pick. But he won’t be little-known for long.
Diggs, playing in just the third game of his career, has five catches for 92 yards and a sensational diving touchdown grab today in Detroit, and thanks largely to Diggs the Vikings have a 22-17 third-quarter lead.
Diggs didn’t even play in the first three games of the season, but he caught six passes for 87 yards in his first game, seven passes for 129 yards in his second and is now having another great game in his third.
The Lions’ defense has bottled up Adrian Peterson today, but they can’t contain Diggs. Until they do, they’re going to be in trouble. And Diggs is hard to stop.
