Buffalo Bills fans find themselves attached to a quarterback that’s not their own. His name is Andy Dalton, and he became a true legend in Western New York after leading the Bengals to a shocking Week 17 win over Baltimore, clinching the Bills’ first playoff appearance since 1999.
Since that dramatic late-game win, Dalton’s foundation has received nearly $300,000 in donations, primarily from Bills fans.
It now looks like fans are taking this to an entirely new level. Here, you will see one such fan wearing an Andy Dalton Bills jersey. And it’s grand.

And no, this doesn’t mean Bills fans want their team to trade for Dalton in the offseason. It’s all about how the quarterback helped their squad earn that rare playoff appearance.
The backdrop here is obviously the vast amount of money Dalton’s charity has received from Bills fans. It’s one of the better sports-related stories of the young new year.
Buffalo heads to Jacksonville to take on the Jaguars in an AFC Wildcard Playoff game Sunday afternoon. By the looks of it, the team will be well represented.
