Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs has been named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week for his efforts in Week 16 against the New England Patriots. The NFL announced the league-wide weekly award winners on Wednesday.

That honor has been a long-time coming… in a way. Overall in 2020, Diggs makes it the fifth-time the Bills (12-3) have had a player earn the award. The other four times were quarterback Josh Allen, most recently in Week 15 vs. the Denver Broncos.

However, the last time a Bills wide receiver earned the honor was Week 12… in 1994. Hall of Famer Andre Reed was that recipient.

Diggs’ name is added to that list after putting up 145 yards total yards via nine catches against the Pats, along with three total touchdowns, in a 38-9 win. Diggs entered Week 16 with five scores on the entire season.

Five AFC Offensive Players of the Year Awards for the Bills, overall, is a team record as well.
