Diggs on how he keeps Allen composed, as teammate and friend
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WHEC) — The high stakes, the pressure, the gravity of the moment, it can sometimes be a lot. Josh Allen has mentioned that it can be tough to stay composed out there. That’s where Stefon Diggs comes in.
The QB said that Diggs is the guy to bring Allen back down to earth or lift him up. The two have a well-documented bromance that’s promoted Bills fans to plant “Allen-Diggs” fake presidential signs on lawns in Western New York.
Through six games, Diggs leads the team with 37 receptions and 463 receiving yards.
Diggs mentioned how he keeps Allen even-keeled.
"Punch him right in the face," Diggs joked. "I try to keep him calm. I can see in a moment where you just got to be a friend, not just be a teammate, but a friend. Just be like, ‘Hey, go place your best, man,’ Things won’t be perfect but being there for a guy that has so much talent and wants to be perfect at it every chance he gets."
