4 biggest overreactions from the Vikings loss to the Colts in Week 2
By Adam Patrick
Trading Diggs was a bad idea
Through the first two weeks of the 2020 season, declaring the Buffalo Bills the winner of the Stefon Diggs trade over the Vikings is an easy argument to make. In two games with the 2-0 Bills, Diggs has 16 catches for 239 yards and one touchdown.
Unfortunately for Buffalo and their new receiver, the season is longer than two weeks. There’s still plenty of time for things to go wrong. Just ask Randy Moss.
Minnesota traded Moss to the Oakland Raiders in 2005 and he got off to a great start during his first year with his new team. In his first two games with the Raiders, the Hall-of-Fame receiver caught 10 passes for 257 yards and two touchdowns.
Oakland was probably trying to figure out why in the world the Vikings traded them their best receiver. Well, then during Moss’ next 11 games with the Raiders, he only caught three touchdowns while averaging just three receptions and 48 yards per matchup.
The point is, two games is far from being enough to judge who got the best end of a trade. No one would be surprised if Diggs continued to put up impressive numbers for the Bills this season. But people also shouldn’t be shocked if he begins to struggle.
Two weeks into a season is just too early to tell when it comes to just about anything in the NFL.
