Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs has been named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week for Week 16. This is the first time he has won the award as a member of the Buffalo Bills. He previously won NFC Offensive Player of the Week for Week 2 of the 2016 season. It’s the seventh time a Bills player has been named AFC player of the week in 2020.
Diggs is the first Bills wide receiver to win this award since Andre Reed in Week 12 in 1994.
Diggs earned this honor with a dominant performance against the New England Patriots on Monday Night. He had nine receptions for 145 yards and three touchdowns. It is only the second time in his career that he has scored three touchdowns in a single game. He is the first Bill with three receiving touchdowns in a game since Stevie Johnson on Nov. 21, 2010 at Cincinnati.
Entering Week 17, the Bills wide receiver leads the NFL the catches (120) and receiving yards (1,459). Both rank as Bills franchise single-season records and personal career-highs. The previous record was set by Eric Moulds (1,368) in 1998.
