Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott avoided disaster on the Bills sideline with wide receiver Stefon Diggs.
Losers of two games in a row, the once-revered Buffalo Bills suddenly aren’t even first place in their own division. Much of that can be pinned on quarterback Josh Allen, who had thrown four interceptions in the last two games entering Sunday afternoon’s contest against the Cleveland Browns.
A massive snowstorm surely did not help Buffalo in their quest to break that losing streak, as most players had to escape more than six feet of accumulation just to fly to Detroit, the location where the home game was moved to. It’s an imperfect system, especially for a team trying to recover its primary identity — a previously-terrifying offense.
Wide receiver Stefon Diggs showed some early frustration against the Browns on Sunday after the Bills came up short of the end zone. Sean McDermott, his head coach, embraced him on the sidelines and prevented what could have been an awkward situation.
Bills coach Sean McDermott consoles Stefon Diggs
Sean McDermott is one of the best coaches in football for a reason. He’s been at the helm since the beginning of the 2017 season, and hasn’t looked back.
As it pertains to this Buffalo team, the only squad in the AFC which can match up player for player is the Kansas City Chiefs. Should they fail to reach the AFC Championship, or fall earlier than expected, they’ll have no one to blame but themselves.
McDermott knows this, and struggles during the regular season are to be expected. They need Diggs to have the right mentality by the time the postseason begins are they to make as deep of run as expected.
Whatever McDermott said appears to have worked, as Diggs scored a touchdown in the first half to give Buffalo the lead after two quarters.
