Trevon Diggs picked up his seventh interception of the season last Sunday against the New England Patriots, tying Hall of Famer Rod Woodson for the most since the 1970 merger in the first six games of a season. However, he also took a hit to his bank account as he was fined for unnecessary roughness for hitting a Patriots player in the facemask according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Not only is Diggs getting interceptions at an unreal rate this season he's also putting up points. He ran back one for a touchdown against the Eagles in Week 3 and did the same against the Patriots in Week 6.
Diggs is having quite the start to his career. In 18 games, he has 10 interceptions and 25 passes defended. The fact that Diggs missed four games as a rookie last season makes these numbers even more impressive.
Diggs is playing at an elite level right now, and when combining that with the 5-1 start for Dallas Cowboys, this small withdrawal from the piggy bank should be amusing to the former second-round pick.
