This is not the first time this has happened
Bills fans are known for their unconditional support for their team, which sometimes crosses the line, such as throwing snowballs at Chiefs players. But another aspect for which she is recognized is her spirit of support. These are some old cases.
Scott Norwood’s failure
The first clear signal came in January 1991. In Super Bowl XXV, a missed field goal by Scott Norwood, ironically also from the right side, cost them their first title when they lost 20–19 to the New York Giants in one of the best games ever. in the history.
The reaction of the fans was to welcome the team as if they had won the title, and they had a special note for Norwood. At the reception he asked Kicker to address the crowd and received a standing ovation that brought tears to Kicker’s eyes, as well as head coach Marv Levy and other members of the team.
Support three quarterbacks in tough moments
Jim Kelly, Doug Flutie and Josh Allen have also felt the support of the Buffalo community. When Jim’s son Hunter Kelly was born in 1997, he was diagnosed with a rare degenerative disease called Krabbe disease.
The elder Kelly soon founded the Hunter Hope Foundation to research the disease. Total donations to the organization reach $1 million in 2023. When Jim was diagnosed with oral cancer, the community supported him at various programs in the area where he stayed after completing his degree.
Meanwhile, Flutie’s son Doug Jr. is diagnosed with a rare form of autism. The Doug Flutie Foundation was created to improve the quality of life of people suffering from this disorder. In the beginning, one of its main sources of income was Flutie Flakes cereal, which sold out on more than one occasion in Western New York.
Allen lost his grandmother, Patricia, in December 2020. To show their support for the quarterback, the team’s fans donated $17 (Allen’s number) in batches to Oshey Children’s Hospital. The hospital announced that their donations had exceeded one million dollars in just a few weeks.
Thanks to Andy Dalton and Tyler Boyd
The tradition of donating to foundations supported or created by players was born in 2017. The Bills needed a victory over the Cincinnati Bengals over the Baltimore Ravens to clinch their first berth in the playoffs.
A pass from Dalton to Boyd with less than a minute left gave the Bills the lead and left us with the viral image of veteran Kyle Williams celebrating with his son.
To thank for the victory, “Bills Mafia” donated more than 100 thousand dollars to the Andy & JJ Dalton Foundation, which is dedicated to the treatment of sick children and their families. In Boyd’s name, he donated it to the Western Pennsylvania Youth Athletic Association.

In 2021, two separate donations were received from the “bill mafia”. Jackson left the divisional matchup between the two teams due to injury and fans searched for his favorite organization, the Louisville Chapter of Blessings in a Backpack.
