In the second quarter, Bills quarterback Josh Allen found Diggs for a 12-yard touchdown pass to go up 17-7 on their divisional rivals in a game that could determine who wins the AFC East. As Diggs celebrated the touchdown, a hot mic caught what he was telling fans who packed Gillette Stadium.
“You, you, you, you, and you … Shut the f— up,” he told the crowd.
Diggs and Isaiah McKenzie each had a touchdown catch. By the end of the third quarter, each players had five or more catches for 60 yards.
Diggs, who led the NFL in receptions and receiving yards last season, has 82 catches for 1,007 yards this season. It’s his fourth straight season of 1,000 or more receiving yards.
The Bills were looking for a revenge victory over the Patriots after losing to them 14-10 in wicked weather at home three weeks ago.
Buffalo entered the game losers of three of its last five. The team was in second place behind the Patriots in the AFC East with the Miami Dolphins on their tail.
