Former Maryland wide receiver Stefon Diggs is four games into his NFL career and he has already accomplished something never done by any other receiver in league history.
After being a healthy scratch for the first three weeks of the season, Diggs has put up receiving games of 87 yards, 129 yards, 108 yards, and 95 yards. According to NFL Director of NFC Football Communications Randall Liu, the former Terp becomes the first NFL receiver ever to register at least 85 yards receiving in each of his first four career games.

Diggs slipped to the fifth round of 2015 NFL Draft, held back by injury concerns and questions about his college production. With quarterback Teddy Bridgewater in Minnesota and injuries in the team's wide receiving corps, Diggs has seized an opportunity and flourished.
"He's a great quarterback and as far as being a great quarterback, he can spin it and you've got to love that in a quarterback," Diggs said of Bridgewater in an interview with NFL Network this week. "I just try to build that chemistry with him by building that trust first off.
"You've got to trust your receiver out there and try to do what you can for him."
