During his time with the Minnesota Vikings, wide receiver Stefon Diggs was known for being someone who wore his emotions on his sleeve.

Diggs was never one to be quiet on the sidelines or on the field during the heat of battle and this characteristic of his is why many Vikings fans enjoyed watching him suit up for their favorite team each week.

Now as a member of the Buffalo Bills, Diggs still is one of the most vocal and emotional players in the entire NFL. At times, however, his emotions can get the best of him and take his focus off of his main goal.

Former Minnesota Vikings receiver almost gets in a fight during AFC Championship

On Sunday, Diggs and the rest of his Buffalo teammates were facing off against the mighty Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship. The matchup was close at first, but the Chiefs eventually pulled away to get a 38-24 win over the Bills.

It was a frustrating day for Buffalo as they were hoping to reach the Super Bowl for the first time since the 1993 season. These frustrations almost resulted in Diggs getting into a fight with a Kansas City player.

Midway through the contest, the TV broadcast showed the former Minnesota receiver and Chiefs linebacker Damien Wilson getting into a bit of a shoving match.

Luckily, Diggs had his teammates looking out for him and Bills receiver Isaiah McKenzie was able to get ahold of the former Vikings pass-catcher before things escalated out of control.

This might be something new to Buffalo fans, but it’s doubtful that any Minnesota fans were surprised by this incident. For as much as Diggs was a vocal leader during his time with the Vikings, there were plenty of times where he couldn’t control his frustrations as well.

Against Kansas City on Sunday, it took a while before Diggs was able to get anything going. He finished the matchup with six catches for 77 yards, but he only had two receptions for 12 yards during the game’s first two quarters.

After the loss, the Bills headed to the locker room, but Diggs remained on the field to watch the Chiefs’ trophy presentation. He stood there with his hands on his hips and watched another team celebrate a conference championship victory for the second time in his NFL career.

With the way Diggs helped Buffalo get all the way to the AFC Championship during his first season with the team, there’s a good chance it won’t be long until he’s back in the playoffs and competing for a spot in the Super Bowl.
