They also ate with the kids. At its best, sports can be a powerful, unifying force.

The Bills fans, known by the hashtag #BillsMafia, were delirious on Sunday after celebrating their first playoff berth since 1999. It felt great to be a Jays fan, or to become one.

Cincinnati quarterback Andy Dalton threw the game-winning 49-yard touchdown to Tyler Boyd with 49 seconds left to give the Bengals the 31-27 victory, eliminating the Ravens, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.

As has been the case with Dalton's fundraiser, most of the donations are coming in $17 increments, in recognition of the Bills' 17-year playoff drought.

It's all a bit weird, but then again, so are Bills fans.

Dalton said that as of Thursday morning, Bills fans have donated almost $300,000 to his charity, the Andy & Jordan Dalton Foundation.

Numerous donations have been in $17 increments, representing each year of the playoff drought. This has been so fantastic to see how supportive people are and how much people are blessing us.

Founded by Dalton and his wife, the foundation provides resources for families with seriously ill and physically-challenged children in Cincinnati and Fort Worth, Texas, where Dalton played in college at Texas Christian University. The same can be said for the positive use of social media, too often the domain of bullies and trolls.

The Cincinnati Bengals are about to receive a pretty tasty thank you. "The impact it's going to make is gonna be huge".
