Josh Allen forces the ball to Stefon Diggs a lot and by a lot I mean pretty much all the time. Guard him with everything you have if you need to.

I feel like this particular article titled sneaky keys to victory might morph into common sense keys to victory. But for this first key to victory, it doesn’t take a neurosurgeon or mechanical engineer(I’m over saying rocket scientist) to figure out that the Miami Dolphins have to guard Stefon Diggs with everything they have.

I hope that means Xavien Howard is over him all game even though he’s dealing with a little bit of a nagging groin issue and also that his position coach, Sam Madison, said he was lackadaisical out there last week when he was guarding Rasoh Bateman.

Howard did play really far back when guarding Bateman especially when the Dolphins were running the cover-0. I get it, he doesn’t want to get burned. But, maybe vary your stance and approach a little bit. Oh, and when you have a for sure pick 6, execute it.

Stefon Diggs, who is having himself an incredible start to the 2022 season is being assisted with that by Josh Allen throwing him the ball all the time. Currently, Diggs is 4th in the league in targets with 24. The next Buffalo Bill on that list is Jamison Crowder with 6 targets. So yeah, have a plan for guarding Diggs.

Let everyone else beat you. Gabe Davis will be playing so he needs attention as well. But as I said, tip your cap to Buffalo if Davis, Crowder, McKenzie, and Knox beat you. Don’t let Stefon Diggs terrorize the defense. Take him away. Not sure how you exactly do that but figure it out, Josh.
