Patriots Fans Are Mad The NFL Didn’t Fine Buffalo’s Stefon Diggs
There's just over a week remaining in the 2021 NFL regular season schedule, with week 17 taking place this Sunday.
The Buffalo Bills are preparing to close out the season with two straight home games; the first against the Atlanta Falcons at Highmark Stadium in what will be Atlanta's first trip to Orchard Park since 2005. The previous home game for Buffalo against the Falcons was played in Toronto.
The Bills are first in the AFC East after their huge 33-21 win on the road in Foxborough against the New England Patriots.
Bills quarterback Josh Allen was the best player on the field, throwing for 300 yards and three touchdowns with zero turnovers. One of those touchdown passes went to star wide receiver Stefon Diggs, as he split the Patriots defense.
However, what happened after the touchdown catch turned out to be something fans remember just as vividly.
Diggs swore at a few Patriots fans as they were yelling at him, and let's just say that what was actually said by Diggs can't be repeated here...
Jokes were made after the fact that Stefon was just wishing the New England fans a "Merry Christmas" or "You get a car, you get a car, you get a car", as it made the rounds on social media.
Some (those in Boston) thought the taunting warranted a fine from the NFL, but the NFL will not fine Diggs for what he said, much to the delight of Bills fans.
What made it more painful for Patriots fans was the fact one of their players was fined for his actions last Sunday. Offensive lineman David Andrews was fined over $10,000 for taunting the Bills.
Bills defensive end Efe Obada was also fined just under $7,000 for a hit on Patriots quarterback Mac Jones.
The Bills have a chance to sew up a playoff spot on Sunday. They have multiple ways but the most likely (and simple) is a win against the Falcons and a Baltimore Ravens tie or loss.
