The Buffalo Bills are making good on a promise they made Sunday, sending 1,440 chicken wings to the Cincinnati Bengals as a thank you for their last-minute win against Baltimore on Sunday, according to the Dayton Daily News. Cincinnati’s come-from-behind 31-27 win sent the Bills into the playoffs for the first time since 1999.
The Bills announced the shipment Thursday evening in a tweet:
Our friends at Duff’s are hitting the road to Cincinnati tonight with: 1440 wings 90 lbs of celery 30 lbs of carrots 6 gallons of blue cheese 9 gallons of Duff’s wing sauce And a TON of thank you’s from Buffalo! #GoBills
>> Bills fans make more than $104K in donations to Dalton’s foundation The gesture came after Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton announced that more than $315,000 had been raised by his charitable foundation in the wake of the team’s win over Baltimore. Fans had taken to celebrating the victory, and Dalton’s game-winning touchdown pass to Tyler Boyd -- by donating to the foundation in increments of $17. The dollars represent each year of the Bills’ playoff drought.
