Quandre Diggs is the NFC defensive player of the week

The Seahawks needed overtime to beat the Rams on Sunday and they got in a position to win largely because of safety Quandre Diggs.

Los Angeles quarterback Baker Mayfield tried to hit Van Jefferson with a deep pass down the left side. But Mayfield put too much air under it and Diggs sped over to intercept the pass and give the ball to Seattle’s offense.

Jason Myers would hit a 32-yard field goal to end the game. And a few hours later, the Seahawks had a ticket to the playoffs.

Now, Diggs has been named the NFC defensive player of the week.

Diggs finishes the 2022 season with 71 total tackles, four interceptions, seven passes defensed, and a forced fumble. He was on the field for every one of Seattle’s 1,156 defensive snaps in 2022.

We’ll see Diggs and the rest of the Seahawks in action this weekend against the 49ers.

  1. Until this week Diggs has had a lackluster season, and of course Jamal Adams has been out since opening day. Next year Diggs and Adams will count $37 millions against the cap, with prohibitive dead cap hits that prevent the Seahawks from moving on from either of them. Good luck with that.

  2. I’m no Lions fan, but would have rather seen this go to Kerby Joseph for his two interceptions of Aaron Rodgers (although one was taken away by penalty) to knock the Packers out of the playoffs.

    That was a much greater feat than catching a wobbly floating duck from Baker Mayfield IMO.

  3. With the entire league watching and, supposedly, nothing to play for…Aidan Hutchinson was disruptive. Just saying.
