This week's adopted favorite quarterback of Buffalo Bills fans is shouting back the love.
Donations to the Andy and Jordan Dalton Foundation have been flooding in from Buffalo Bills fans ever since this past weekend, when Dalton's Cincinnati Bengals helped the Bills end a 17-year playoff drought. The Bengals beat the Baltimore Ravens to push the Bills into a playoff game against the Jacksonville Jaguars this coming Sunday.
To date, the foundation says Bills fans have donated more than $200,000 to the charity that helps children who are seriously ill or physically challenged and their families - and that figure continues to climb. Many donations have been $17, to mark the 17 years since Buffalo's last playoff appearance.
The Daltons have been sending thanks all week, but now they are putting their thanks in writing.
Several electronic billboards from the Daltons are being displayed around Western New York through the weekend, including wishes for good luck. A special message of gratitude also tops the foundation's homepage.
