The Kansas City Chiefs’ fandom has stepped up in a huge way for an opponent.
Days after the AFC West champs outlasted the Buffalo Bills in overtime in an incredible Divisional Round game, the Kansas City fandom showed its support of the famed Bills’ Mafia.
How you ask?
How about donating $178,000 at this writing to Oishei Children’s Hospital as a nod to the Bills’ Mafia’s fundraising efforts.

The idea came from a Chiefs Kingdome Facebook group mention to donate in $13 increments to Patrick Mahomes’ Foundation to commemorate the 13 seconds it took for a game-tying drive at the end of regulation.

It became an audible to the Bills’ fund-raising when KC fans recognized the efforts of their opponent’s fans.

The foundation was ignited by Bills QB Josh Allen and pays tribute to his late grandmother, Patricia.
This is what sports and fandom is supposed to be about.
