In a game that ended up being worth the pregame fanfare, the Buffalo Bills lost a close Sunday Night Matchup with the Cincinnati Bengals.
This had the workings of an early blowout, as the Bengals came out of the gates with a 21-7 halftime lead.
After this hot start by the Bengals, Stefon Diggs seemed upset with his in-game usage, frustrated with a lack of production.
In a quote shared by reporter Olivia Ray via Dov Kleiman, Diggs said that he wasn’t “even sweating” at halftime.
𝐑𝐞𝐩𝐨𝐫𝐭: As #Bills WR Stefon Diggs was heading to the locker room, he was seen shaking his head in frustration.
"I’m not even sweating. I’m not even f***ing sweating."
The #Bills are down 21-7 at halftime and Diggs caught 2 passes for 43 yards. He only got 2 targets.

The Bills’ WR1 finished the first half with two receptions for 43 yards, a small total given Diggs’ typical brilliance.
His frustration might have reared its head in the locker room, leading Josh Allen to give him more looks in the second half.
Diggs ended the game with six receptions for 86 yards and a touchdown, a stat line that looks closer to how he usually performs.
This outburst was the latest such instance for Diggs, who is known to show his emotions boldly in a public setting.
Many close to the team were concerned that Diggs would sit out for the Bills during the offseason due to unhappiness in the prior season.
However, he has stuck around, resulting in another positive on-field campaign for the talented receiver.
Fans will be interested to see if this is a common theme moving forward, especially if Diggs sees a limited workload in the first half of games.
