The Bills are sending 1,440 chicken wings to the Cincinnati Bengals as a thank you for their win over the Baltimore Ravens last Sunday that clinched Buffalo’s first playoff berth since 1999.
The Bills announced the shipment from local restaurant chain Duff’s in a tweet Thursday night:
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

In a thank-you note to the Bengals posted on Twitter after Sunday’s games, the Bills promised they would send wings to Cincinnati.
The Bills’ gesture comes after thousands of fans donated to Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton’s charitable foundation this week in appreciation for his late 49-yard touchdown pass to Tyler Boyd to beat the Ravens. Over $315,000 had been raised as of Thursday night, Dalton announced on Twitter.
Fans have also flocked to contribute to Boyd’s cause, donating more than $50,000 to the Western Pennsylvania Youth Athletic Association.
