The Buffalo Bills are headed to the postseason for the first time in nearly two decades. Buffalo snapped its 17-year long playoff drought on Sunday evening when they took down the Miami Dolphins, 22-16.

But because it was Week 17 in the NFL and we’re talking about a wild card spot, it wasn’t as easy as the Bills are in with a win. They needed some help, and thanks to the Cincinnati Bengals, they got that help.

Cincinnati and Baltimore played a wild game, one that included the Bengals scoring a game-winning touchdown with 2:51 remaining to go up 31-27, which caused Bills fans to lose their minds.

It was, understandably, a massive moment for Buffalo and its fans, and the organization wanted to show its appreciation to the Bengals for their help. So like any good group of western New Yorkers, the Bills announced that they’re going to send some delicious chicken wings to the fine folks within the Bengals organization.

This is a nice gesture from the people in Buffalo’s front office. Usually when food is exchanged from one organization to another because of sports, it’s because someone lost a lighthearted bet, so it’s cool that the Bills want the Bengals to know how much they appreciate the fact that the longest postseason drought in the league came to an end. And besides, who doesn’t love free wings?
