The Man Who Started the Dalton Foundation Frenzy
When Andy Dalton's last second touchdown pass ended the playoff hopes for the Ravens and clinched the Bills' first trip the postseason since the 1999-2000 season, all of BillsMafia celebrated wildly.

In fact, he lives in Nebraska where he is surrounded by Chiefs fans for the most part, but the playoff drought affected Kevin as much as anyone living in Orchard Park. When he finally saw that drought end, one of his first thoughts was to thank the Bengals quarterback for helping push the Bills over the top. Kevin didn't send a simple tweet or write something on Facebook he knew Dalton would likely never see.
