Stefon Diggs had more receiving yards than the Vikings’ whole team today

The Vikings’ decision to trade their No. 1 wide receiver, Stefon Diggs, did not look wise today.

Diggs, who was traded to the Bills for a haul of draft picks this offseason, was outstanding in Buffalo’s win over Miami today. Diggs caught eight passes for 153 yards and a touchdown, the most receiving yards of any player in the league so far in Week Two.

Without Diggs, the Vikings’ offense is a mess. The Vikings managed just 95 passing yards, with Kirk Cousins gaining 113 through the air but losing 18 on sacks, in today’s loss to the Colts.

It’s too soon to fully assess the Diggs trade, but through two games, he’s a big part of the Bills being 2-0, and his absence is a big part of the Vikings being 0-2.

  1. As long as Allen continues to spread the football, looks will continue to be there for Diggs.
    If there’s one thing you can’t say about the Bills Offense, it’s that they’re 1 dimensional. ANYBODY on this team can be the star. And I love it

    Josh Allen > Kirk Cousins

    Woody Allen > Kirk Cousins.
    Heck, my drunk uncle Alan over Kirk Cousins.

    Stefon Diggs is playing with a better QB. Josh Allen > Kirk Cousins

    Plays on a much better team too.

  4. The Wilfs are not about to fire Spieldope and Zim, or even cut Cousins for that matter, not after resigning them all only a handful of weeks ago.

    Nope, you guys are stuck, mired in mediocrity. Again.
    Honestly, mediocrity may be too kind.
    Hamstrung from even the hope of a rebuild for at least another 3 years.
    The land of 10,000 lakes, all of them created by Barney tears.

  5. Congrats to Diggs and the Bills – I hope it lasts (by that I mean the success by Diggs and the Bills, not my favorite team stinking).

  6. Cousins is so pathetically overpaid. If I started calling him Kirk Cutler, people would know exactly who I was talking about.

  7. Cousins would be knocking on the Hall of Fame door in Canton if he could work the field the way his agents worked the system.

  8. Makes a nice headline, but in reality if Diggs was still a Viking, they’d still be 0-2. Hes not the difference between them winning and losing.

    I’ve been saying it for three years, the OL is horrible. They havent done squat to fix it.

    Now the defense is lousy too…..

    And the schedule isnt easy this year, I see 7-9 at best this year. And I bet they dont draft OL in the first round again next year….

  9. Remember this Viking fans, PA and Charch brainwashed you into this Kurt Cousins was a good QB.

    You would be better off with Kyle Sloter.

  10. Aaron Jones, a divisional rival, also had more yards then the total Viking’s offense. And with the way the Viking secondary is currently playing Russell Wilson will set records for most passing yards in a game and most touchdown passes.

  11. Satan says:
    I thought Rick Spielman was supposed to be some sort of magician.

    He cut the Vikings’ chances of winning the NFC North in half, made their playoff aspirations disappear, and magically escaped the unemployment line.
    What else do you want him to do, pull a rabbit out of Kirk Cousins’ helmet?

  12. The difference isn’t Diggs, its the QB that is throwing the ball. No doubt Diggs is a top talented WR but in the end, the QB needs time, protection and accuracy to make Diggs look this good. Fact of the matter is the Vikings suck and that’s the biggest difference.

  13. To those who want to cut Cousins – sorry, but it’s not happening. Cutting players doesn’t save money when their contract is guaranteed. They’d sooner make him a healthy scratch for the rest of the year than cut him and invoke a whopping $62 million in dead money. ($41 million if they do it next year, probably still too steep). Their only real option for getting rid of him would be to give up draft capital to work out some sort of salary dump trade with a team like the Browns that could actually afford the cap hit (like the Texans did when they dumped Osweiler to the Browns, so that they could absorb the cap hit of cutting him, rather than the Texans).
