Week Two of the 2020 NFL season kicked off on Thursday, and several Terps took the field on Sunday.
Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs easily had the best performance of any of former Maryland football players across the league.
Diggs went off for 153 yards and one touchdown, his first as a Bill, and he caught eight of his 13 targets from Josh Allen. With the victory, he and Buffalo improved to 2-0.

Former Terp wide receiver DJ Moore also had himself a day.
He caught eight of his 13 targets for 120 yards, leading the Panthers in receiving yards against the division rival Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Moore should continue to be the lead guy for Carolina as the chemistry with new quarterback Teddy Bridgewater gets stronger each week.
