If it has not become clear enough that the Buffalo Bills are gracious to the Cincinnati Bengals for their pivotal role in getting Buffalo into the postseason for the first time in a very long time, what more proof do you need?
On top of Bills fans donating wildly to Andy Dalton’s foundation to show their gratitude to the Bengals quarterback, the Bills made good on their promise to feed the Bengals staff with a delivery of Buffalo wings.
The Bills teased their promise of free wings shortly after the Bills clinched a spot in the AFC Playoffs as the No. 6 seed after the Bengals stunned the Baltimore Ravens.

Not one to make promises they won’t keep, the Bills worked out an arrangement with Duff’s in Buffalo to get the Bengals a full supply of Duff’s signature Buffalo chicken wings, complete with celery and blue cheese.
Our friends at Duff’s are hitting the road to Cincinnati tonight with:
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

The Bengals were certainly looking forward to their upcoming feast.

As for those donations continuing to come into Dalton’s foundation, Dalton provided yet another update to say the donations have eclipsed $315,000.

This budding relationship between the Bills and Bengals has been fun to watch. The two teams will not face off in the 2018 season, so the two franchises can continue to keep up good relations for a little while longer before having to worry about squaring off on the football field again. Maybe the Bills can make it up to the Bengals next year somehow.
