Bills receiver Stefon Diggs got away with taunting in the season opener, avoiding a penalty flag. The NFL, though, made him pay a price this week.

The league docked Diggs $10,609 for unsportsmanlike conduct.

Following his 53-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter, Diggs taunted Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey.

It was the final points in a blowout victory for the Bills. Diggs caught eight passes for 122 yards and the score, and Ramsey allowed a perfect passer rating.

Ramsey said Friday that wasn’t the worst game of his career as he took the criticism from the season opener as a backhanded compliment.

  1. In that Rams-Bills game,I’ve never seen Jalen Ramsey get used and abused like that from start to finish.

  2. Revis 2.0..

    Would love to see him turn it around, still a young buck. I believe a couple of passes were broken coverage help.

    Crazy quote though, not something anyone expected him to say! Lol

  3. Such a random dollar amount. $10609.00 ? Do they calculate the amount wheel of fortune style?

  4. He tapped his helmet three times, which in my book doesn’t constitute as taunting. If anything the player Ramsey once stupidly called “Trash” was the one taunting… after the Diggs TD Allen made it a point to jog past Ramey staring right in his eyes screaming let’s fuc&ing go!!! Ramsey was beat repeatedly by Allen and his receivers all night long.

  5. Let’s not forget Ramsey’s been injured. But on the other hand you gotta give props to Diggs. He has truly become an elite WR since escaping from Minnesota.

  6. After allowing a perfect passer rating when targeted, I wonder if Ramsey still thinks Josh Allen is “trash”.

  7. Yeah – tho I don’t particularly like Ramsey, Diggs should’ve definitely got a penalty on that play. $10k is paltry – Diggs may have that in loose-change, in his car.

  8. I get the whole trash talking thing at this level, but the NFL is loaded with DB’s that are just barely better than average and have a few good highlights or a lucky INT year and then over promote themselves (rightfully so; it is a business). Josh Norman was all the craze and then fell off the map and I mean before age got to him. JC Jackson played well for a season and then got toasted so far this year. My guess is Trevon Diggs is the next flash in the pan.
