There also was a raucous scene in the Bills' locker room after a win over Miami when they saw Dalton's touchdown pass. Now Bills fans are adding support to a charity close to the receiver who caught the touchdown pass.
This is likely the highest honor Bills fans can bestow upon someone, so I hope Dalton doesn't take it lightly.
The Bills face the Jacksonville Jaguars in a Wild Card round bout at 1:05 p.m. Sunday at EverBank Field in Jacksonville.
Dalton reported that by Tuesday evening, 7,000 people had donated more than $170,000 to his foundation, enough to cover the charity's goals for 2018. Dalton posted a video on his Twitter account Wednesday expressing his gratitude with an update on the donations.
And Buffalo is quite grateful for the duo of Dalton and Boyd. Dalton's foundation helps children who have suffered with serious illnesses and physical challenges.
The Bills fans, known by the hashtag #BillsMafia, were delirious on Sunday after celebrating their first playoff berth since 1999. This has been so awesome to see how supportive people are and how much people are blessing us. The team made the announcement on Twitter Thursday and said the gesture is for a "TON of thank you's from Buffalo".
Donating $17 is a small personal commitment, but when a large community rallies, such as a city's sports fans, it can make a significant impact for many in need. They won their last two games, knocking the Lions and Ravens out of the playoff race.
