Who Got DIGGS?????
Nobody, circles the wagons like the Buffalo Bills. Now 11-3 , an 11-year window of one sided views has finally bared a reflection. One, of many goals has finally come to fruition. the AFC East now belongs to Orchard Park. The Buffalo Bills are division champions, and there's nothing Bill Belichick, Adam Gase, or Brian Flores can do about it. By winning the division the Buffalo Bills has snapped a streak of 25 years of catering to the head of the table. There are multiple directions one could point to for the success of this team. The obvious direction would North, and that's Coach McDermott. Since departing Carolina, he has implemented a culture of staying hungry and humble. He has turned around a franchise who was getting used to mediocrity, and settling for little accomplishments. He's instilled a mentality that no one is bigger than the team; a "do your job" Bill Belichick-ish type mentality. You can also think coach Daboll for teaching toughness and synchronicity. Hardly bend, never break. One could point to Leslie Frazier as well. The Buffalo D has been stout since the bye week. But that's just one direction. You have to thank the South, for not knowing what they had, until it's gone. The SMU madman and former Dallas Cowboy Cole Beasley, is having a career year. The king of the slot, is about to have his first 1,000 yard season. Sitting at 79 receptions, 950 yards and 4 touchdowns, Cole Beasley is redefining the craft in 2020. With 2 games left, Beasley has an outside shot of obtaining 100 receptions. He has also had 5 100 yard games this year. You have to look West to understand how the East was won. Josh Allen, the third year quarterback out of Wyoming, is having a spectacular season. Thought to be a draft day project/ borderline bust, there were doubts about his ceiling of progression. Deemed as only a mobile quarterback, Allen has erased all of those stereotypes. Currently, Josh Allen has 3,975 yards passing, and 30 touchdown passes. He has connected with 12 different Buffalo Bills for touchdowns. He is also a dual threat quarterback. With 383 yards rushing, and eight rushing touchdowns, there is certainly an MVP award in Allen's future. Alan carves up top tier defenses with a chainsaw type arm. Just ask San Francisco, the Los Angeles Rams, or even Pittsburgh. But the primary focus of this offense is the man that has an innate ability to escape defenders. A man, that has a knack for making corners look silly; regardless of coverage. He 'finesses' them, into making bad decisions and misreading his route tree. If one were to look to the east, Stefon Diggs has been collecting bodies all season. He leads the league in receptions with 111 so far. He just recently passed an 18-year franchise record held by Eric Moulds. The Maryland Terrapin product from Virginia, has found his limelight as a #1 in the AFC East. So far this year, Diggs has accumulated 1,314 receiving yards, and five touchdowns. He has six games with 100 yards receiving. In his sixth year, he has moved east, from Minnesota to Buffalo, to establish his place as one of the best receivers in the game. His route running is superb, and has a amazing rapport with Josh Allen. He is such a threat on offense, that it opens up opportunities for the rest of the wide receivers and skill players. This isn't a shock, considering that he was doing this in Minnesota as the #2 behind Adam Thielen. With the Miami Dolphins and New York Jets in rebuild mode, and with the Patriots finally falling from Grace, the Buffalo Bills have acquired an asset that will make them a threat in the AFC for a long time. The Buffalo Bills are currently the third seed in the AFC. They hold a tiebreaker over the Pittsburgh Steelers, and are looking to advance deep in this year's playoffs. The defense has come around, and has shown that they can shut down opposing offenses. Once the offense is up big, Devin Singletary and Zach Moss eat away the clock with a ground and pound game. the bills have an extra day to prepare for a Monday night tilt against a reeling New England Patriots squad. Cam Newton has not impressed this year, and the defense is starting to show flaws. After being blown out from the Los Angeles Rams, and losing a heartbreaker to the Miami Dolphins, the New England Patriots are the perfect victim to cement that the Buffalo Bills are the new standard of the AFC East.
