    According to Pro Football Reference, through the first four weeks of the , Trevon Diggs has two interceptions (tied for 1st in the NFL), nine pass break-ups (1st in the NFL), and has only allowed 157 pass yards and one touchdown. In coverage of over 20+ yards per target, Diggs has allowed zero catches, forced four incompletions, and has a coverage grade of 97.7%.

There are a ton of key players on this defense that are responsible for the team's success, but it’s time to finally give Trevon Diggs the respect he deserves as one of the top three cornerbacks in the league.
