Bills fans donate almost $400K to Andy Dalton, Tyler Boyd charities

Now here's the really great part - Buffalo Bills fans started donating to Andy Dalton's foundation within hours as a "Thank you". Dalton posted a video on his Twitter account Wednesday expressing his gratitude with an update on the donations. Dalton's foundation helps children who have suffered with serious illnesses and physical challenges.

"This has been just so fantastic to see just how supportive people are, how much people are blessing us with these donations".

Giddy Buffalo fans continue to send a lot more money to an National Football League quarterback from Katy who helped them get into the playoffs. "I think I'm the hottest guy in Buffalo right now", Dalton said Monday.

Boyd initially said he hoped to raise $20,000, but when grateful Bills fans blew past that, he changed the goal to $50,000.

Novak Djokovic to play exhibition events before Australian Open
Defending champion Serena Williams pulled out of the Australian Open on Friday, saying she was still not at the level she needs to be after giving birth to her first child. "I can compete - but I don't want to just compete".

The donations have already surpassed the foundation's annual budget of $144,000, which will allow the charity to help more families with $2,000 monthly grants for medical bills and other needs, according to The New York Times.

There also was a raucous scene in the Bills' locker room after a win over Miami when they saw Dalton's touchdown pass.

The Bills will now look to make some noise in the playoffs when they play the Jaguars on Sunday at 1 p.m. And thanks to the fans who are helping those in need here in Cincinnati. While the Bills' long streak of playoff futility is over, the Bengals' streak continues.
