Buffalo Bills star Stefon Diggs surprised some with his strange start to the catching competition at the Pro Bowl Games on Sunday.

Diggs needed to make a spectacular and stylish catch to help the AFC in the battle for NFL supremacy. He began his round by crouching behind the NFL cheerleaders, who were facing the mat the contestants were supposed to land on when they made their catch.

Once it was Diggs’ turn, he started to run and the cheerleaders got out of the way. He then bounced on a trampoline through the smoke to try to catch two balls thrown at him. However, the attempt failed.

The entire ordeal shocked NFL fans watching the event.

The 2023 Pro Bowl was the third selection in Diggs’ career. He had a great season to back it up.

He recorded over 1,000 receiving yards for the fifth straight time and had at least 10 receiving touchdowns for the second straight season. The Bills star had 108 catches for 1,429 yards and 11 touchdowns. It was one of the main reasons Buffalo was successful on offense this season.
