The Buffalo Bills ended a 17-year playoff drought on the weekend, narrowly squeaking into the second AFC Wild Card playoff spot by the end of action on New Year’s Eve. They did their part, beating the Miami Dolphins 22-16, but they still needed a couple other results to go their way.

The easiest path into the postseason was for the Ravens to lose their game against the Bengals, which ended up happening when Cincinnati QB Andy Dalton threw for three touchdowns, including the game-winning score with less than two minutes to go in the game. Just like that, the longest playoff drought in North American sports was over (and now belongs to the Seattle Mariners).

Football fans in Buffalo were ecstatic, and the Bills organization even tweeted out that they were sending complimentary wings to the Bengals. Not to be outdone, members of the #BillsMafia quickly rallied around the idea of donating to Dalton’s personal charity, the Andy & Jordan Dalton Foundation. It aims to “provide daily support, opportunities, resources and life-changing experiences to seriously ill and physically challenged children and their families in Cincinnati and Fort Worth.”

Donations starting pouring in Sunday evening (often in $17.00 increments, symbolizing the number of years the Bills have missed the playoffs), and by Monday afternoon a total of $22,000 had been raised.

By Monday evening, the numbers has skyrocketed even further.

This story is being published Tuesday afternoon, with the latest update from Dalton himself putting the total donation over $100,000 from 4,500 different Buffalo fans.

That’s pretty impressive from Buffalo fans, who usually spend their time getting blackout drunk while tailgating and crashing through (sometimes flaming) tables in a weird homage to pro wrestling. And football. We think.
