Since coming to the Buffalo Bills via a trade before the 2020 NFL season, wide receiver Stefon Diggs has played like one of the top wide receivers in the league, instantly developing a strong rapport with quarterback Josh Allen.
But as strong as the Allen-to-Diggs connection has been, in today’s edition of Buffalo Rumblinks, we discuss how Buffalo’s passing game has mostly struggled whenever Allen looks for a receiver not named Diggs.

Through the first six games of the 2023 season, outside of Diggs, the Bills haven’t found enough production from Gabe Davis, Khalil Shakir, Deonte Harty and Trent Sherfield.
