Smith explains why the Bills' divisional round loss has him reconsidering his perception of Josh Allen. (2:45) 8:42 PM ET Alaina GetzenbergESPN ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs ' frustrations with the outcome of the team's divisional round playoff game were visible Sunday on the sideline and after the game, and on Monday night, Diggs shared some of his thoughts on Twitter. "Want me to be okay with losing ? Nah," Diggs tweeted. "Want me to be okay with our level of play when it's not up to the standard ? Nah." In a third tweet, Diggs said, "It's easy to criticize my reaction more than the result." Diggs was shown on the TV broadcast midway through the fourth quarter with his arms outstretched seemingly saying things in the direction of quarterback Josh Allen as the Bills were limited to a season-low 10 points. After the game, Diggs initially moved toward leaving the stadium with his things before some coaches had an opportunity to get the locker room, but practice squad running back Duke Johnson stopped and talked to him and Diggs went briefly back to the locker room. "Just knowing that [Diggs] was in an emotional state, it's not who he is, it's not what he's about," Johnson said on Monday. "He just in an emotional state, so don't want emotional decision to affect him in the long term, so I thought it was best that he just be a part of whatever was going on in the locker room at the time."

Diggs was not available during the team's locker room clean out on Monday. McDermott said that he did speak to Diggs the day after the game but kept the details between them. "Stef's a highly competitive individual, as we all know, and that's part of the reason why we all love him," McDermott said. "And he's frustrated like we all are. He was in today and he and I spoke, and I'll leave it at that." Johnson said that he thinks Diggs deserves more credit for deciding to return. "Diggs didn't have to listen to me. Diggs didn't have to, he didn't have to go back in there, but he chose to, because he also knew at that moment, he was just upset," Johnson said. "So, I think it's a lot of credit to him as well, just because, again, he didn't have to. He could have told me to ... you feel me? So, at the end of the day, again, he's emotional, it was a big, big step for him, and I appreciate him more than he know[s] for actually listening and going back in the locker room." Diggs was far from alone in his frustration after an emotional season for the team came to an end. The Bills' 27-10 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals stung throughout the organization with many players searching for answers after a third straight year of coming up short of advancing to the Super Bowl. "I'll ask [what is going to take to get over the hump] just like you asking that question," wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie said. "I really don't know cause everything ... we got the players, we got the coaches, we got everything we wanted. We're winning football games when we need to win them during the season and then we get to the playoffs, it's just like, it's not there and I'm still not understanding that."
