OK, so former Maryland wide receiver Stefon Diggs is showing he can play a little bit in the NFL.
In his first game of the season on Oct. 4, Diggs caught six passes for 87 yards. In his next game, on Oct. 18, he caught seven passes for 129 yards.
Then this happened today.
.@stefon_diggs turns "overthrown pass" into "Catch of the Year Contender". So so so soooooo sick. #MINvsDET https://t.co/7L9TZ9SpHR

Diggs, who finished Sunday's 28-19 win over the Detroit Lions with six receptions for 108 yards, fell to the fifth round of the NFL draft this past offseason. He was selected 146th overall by the Minnesota Vikings.
That means a certain wide-receiver-starved team in Baltimore that was in position to scout Diggs pretty closely over the past couple of seasons had six opportunities to draft him before the Vikings did.
The Ravens couldn't have known that first-round draft pick Breshad Perriman would miss every single snap at this point in the season because of a mysteriously-slow-healing knee injury.
But with so few reliable receiving options on the team, it's tough to watch an ex-Terp play so well in another team's purple jersey.
