Colts Fans Thank Bills For Playoff Help With Incredible Donation Gesture

Videos by OutKick

The donations keep rolling in at the Oishei Children’s Hospital in Buffalo, where Bills fans started donating $17 in honor of Josh Allen’s late grandmother after her passing in November. Sunday, the hospital noticed donations rolling in from Colts fans as a thank you to the Bills for helping Indianapolis punch a ticket to the playoffs and face…the Bills.

Entering Sunday, the Colts needed a Ravens, Browns or Dolphins loss combined with an Indy win over the Jags to secure a playoff spot. The Colts won, but so did the Ravens and Browns, which left the Dolphins as their only hope. If the Bills could defeat the Dolphins, then the Colts’ playoff hopes would become a reality.

The Bills delivered in spectacular fashion, drilling the Dolphins 56-26 and paving the way for Colts fans to unload cash on the kids at Oishei in honor of Allen’s grandmother.

“Thank you for the donations, Colts Nation! Your support of the Patricia Allen Fund will help our critical care team care for our area’s most vulnerable patients, so on their behalf, thank you!” Oishei Children’s tweeted. “The fun has now exceeded $1,050,000.”

Last week, the fund crossed over $1,000,000 after Bills fan Sue McCollum donated $217,000, ensuring her spot in Bills Mafia history.

The gesture by Colts fans is reminiscent of Bills fans pouring donations into Andy Dalton’s charity after the then-Bengals quarterback helped send Buffalo to the playoffs in 2018.

The Colts are rewarded with a trip to Buffalo for the first home game at Ralph Wilson Stadium since December 28, 1996.

  1. Not only that, the Colts are going to gift the Bills a win on Saturday by not scoring any points in the third quarter and the majority of the 4th quarter, same as they’ve done in nearly every game this year. I’m not sure what blackhole the Colts offense falls into each week, but its a doozy.
