Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs wanted more opportunities to make big plays for his team. He got that chance on Thursday Night Football and immediately coughed it up.
After turning around Washington Redskins cornerback Fabian Moreau on a beautiful route, Diggs hauled in the football then turned upfield. When he tried to slip past linebacker Cole Holcomb, Washington’s linebacker popped it out and fellow linebacker Ryan Anderson recovered it.
It’s the third time Diggs has fumbled the football this season and the third lost fumble. While he’s been an outstanding big-play threat in recent weeks, he can’t seem to avoid the costly mistakes either.
