BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Bills fans helped raise over $30,000 in one day for Bengals wide right Tyler Boyd’s fundraising effort.

Boyd caught Bengals QB Andy Dalton’s game-winning pass Sunday, clinching a long-awaited play-off spot for the Buffalo Bills.

As a thank you gesture, Bills fans have been pouring donations into both players’ causes- Dalton’s Andy and Jordan Dalton Fund, and Boyd’s YouCaring page to support the Western PA Youth Athletic Association.

Just Wednesday, the page raised over $30,000- and has no signs of stopping, a representative from YouCaring said Wednesday.

As a nod to the end of the Bills’ 17-year playoff drought, many fans are choosing to donate $17.

Boyd played in the league as a child, and is raising funds for new structures, equipment, and travel arrangements.
