Josh Allen, Stefon Diggs among most popular jerseys in the NFL

Allen (ninth in jersey sales) and Diggs (50th) enjoyed tremendous success on and off the field in 2020.

On the football field, the Buffalo Bills posted a 13-3 record during the 2020 NFL season, earning their first AFC East Championship and first playoff victory in 25 years as the Bills would make their first appearance in the AFC Championship game since the 1993 season.

After a year playing before no fans during its home games, Buffalo hosted and defeated both the Indianapolis Colts (Wild Card round) and Baltimore Ravens (Divisional round) during the playoffs before falling on the road to the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC title game.

Overall, it was a highly success campaign for the Bills, led by quarterback Josh Allen, who emerged as one of the league’s best, shattering numerous franchise passing records on his way to finishing as the NFL MVP runner-up.

Off the field, the Bills were just as successful with their fans, with Allen and record-setting wide receiver Stefon Diggs cracking the NFL’s top 50 for player jersey sales from the end of the 2019 season to the end of the 2020 season.

In his third season as Buffalo’s starting quarterback, Allen’s No. 17 jersey ranked ninth in the league, trailing only Tom Brady, Patrick Mahomes, Lamar Jackson, Tua Tagovailoa, Aaron Rodgers, Joe Burrow, Russell Wilson and George Kittle.

Diggs, the first Bills receiver to be named first team All-Pro, set franchise records for receiving yards (1,535) and receptions (127) in a season, becoming the first Bills player to lead the league in either category. After a successful debut season in Buffalo, Diggs’s No. 14 jersey was the 50th most popular NFL jersey with people.

The list includes officially licensed jerseys sold between March 1, 2020 and February 28, 2021.
