After crushing the division-rival Miami Dolphins in Week 4, the Buffalo Bills seemed as though they had finally arrived this season as a legitimate Super Bowl title contender, with stars Josh Allen and Stefon Diggs playing at an extremely high level.
Unfortunately, the Bills were brought back down to Earth a week later on the road in London when they took on Trevor Lawrence and the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Even though Buffalo made a game of it against the Jaguars, Jacksonville came out on top across the pond with a five-point victory over Allen and company.
During the loss to the Jaguars, Diggs had another sideline outburst, which, according to Allen, was taken the wrong way because he was frustrated at himself for running a route incorrectly, via Alex Brasky of Batavia Daily News.

Diggs’ emotional outbursts on the field and the sideline have been a hot topic of discussion over the past two years or so, with some believing that he’s been frustrated with Allen at times.
Even though that might’ve been the case in the past, Allen is adamant that this time around, it wasn’t what happened and that he’s growing tired of this persistent narrative about whether Diggs is unhappy in Buffalo.
Despite being upset with himself over that route he ran, Diggs had another solid game in Week 5, as he finished with eight catches for 121 yards and a touchdown.
Diggs has cracked the 100-yard receiving mark each game this season except for the win over the Las Vegas Raiders, where he caught seven passes for 66 yards.NEXT: Super Bowl Champion Notes Josh Allen's Biggest Problem This Season
