The Bills appear to be the biggest Andy Dalton fan outside of Cincinnati.

The Bengals quarterback's last-minute touchdown pass to Tyler Boyd not only secured a Cincinnati win over the Ravens, but sent the Bills to the playoffs for the first time since 1999.

Bills fans were so enthused that they began flooding Dalton's foundation, the Andy & Jordan Dalton Foundation, with donations.

"I think I'm the hottest guy in Buffalo right now," Dalton said Monday. "According to my Twitter, I think everybody's loving us right now. Obviously that's a crazy fan base, and they're all pretty excited."

According to Dalton, most of the donation amounts were $17, which represents the 17 seasons the Bills have not been to the playoffs.

"We're appreciative of that. Obviously they're helping out a good cause. It's been pretty fun to see the reaction we've gotten," Dalton said.

The donations continued all day on Monday with Dalton saying they were getting "10 donations a minute!"
