Dalton said that Buffalo fans donated money to his charity that provides aid for ill and physically challenged children and their families, NFL.com said. Many Bills fans donated $17 in recognition of the 17-year drought as word spread rapidly through social media.
"This has been just so fantastic to see just how supportive people are, how much people are blessing us with these donations".
