Buffalo Bills thank Cincinnati Bengals with chicken wings for wildcard playoff spot

Numerous donations have been in $17 increments, representing each year of the playoff drought.

It's refreshing in these cynical times to see the power of sports fanaticism result in a magnanimous outpouring that benefitted people outside their own community. On behalf of this team, the people of the City of Buffalo, and Bills fans around the world, thank you.

Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton has become a hero in Buffalo.

Dalton immediately became a Buffalo hero, inspiring its fanatics to donate to the Cincinnati QB's charity, which provides funding and experiences for seriously ill children and their families in OH and Texas.

5 deputies shot, 1 fatally, in shooting near Denver
A source in the sheriff's office told KKTV that the situation is "not looking good for us" as deputies were shot at. Residents living in the vicinity were asked to take shelter in place, and avoid windows and exterior walls.

Others donated $49 in honor of Dalton's 49-yard strike to Tyler Boyd.

"A big Bills thank you for your help yesterday, but more importantly thank you for your work with children day in and day out off the field, " a pair of Bills fans named Denice and Jim Dunn wrote on the team's Facebook page. Bills fans also donated more than $20,000 to a fund-raising campaign started by Boyd to raise money for the Western Pennsylvania Youth Athletic Association. The win knocked the Ravens out of the playoffs and pushed the Bills in. While the Bills' long streak of playoff futility is over, the Bengals' streak continues. He was surprised and thankful for the reaction by Bills fans. That charity helps kids in Cincinnati hospitals who are ill or have special needs.

The Bills will now look to make some noise in the playoffs when they play the Jaguars on Sunday at 1 p.m.
