CINCINNATI – Who would have thought a TD pass could become the early Feel Good Sports Story of 2018?
Andy Dalton sent a thank-you letter to Buffalo Bills fans Saturday after they flooded the Andy and Jordan Dalton Foundation with $345,000 in grateful donations - a heartwarming response to Dalton's TD pass that beat the Ravens and lifted the Bills into the playoffs.
"What you all have done is beyond football, the Bengals and Bills, and any individual player or play," the Bengals quarterback said in a letter published in the Buffalo News. "Your donations will touch hundreds of real people, real lives."
If you can't imagine the reaction from Bills fans, watch this video. It's synchronized to the reaction from the Bills locker room and fans gatherings when Dalton hit Tyler Boyd for the game-winning TD.
Scott Aldinger summed up what it says about Bills fans:
"We might break a few tables here and there and light ourselves on fire from time to time but we Bills fans sure are classy when it counts."
The Dalton's foundation provides support, opportunities, resources and life-changing experiences to seriously ill and physically challenged children and their families in Cincinnati and Fort Worth, according to its website.
