The Bills defeated the Ravens 17-3 on Saturday in the AFC divisional round.

It shone after the game and on Sunday, when a group of Bills fans responded to the victory and concussion Jackson suffered in the third quarter by making a donation stream to a charity Jackson supports, which benefits the youth of Louisville.

So Bills fans - nicknamed the Bills Mafia - wanted to show their support for the injured National Football League player.

Blessings in a Backpack is a charity that works to feed elementary school children who are in need on weekends.

Blessings in a Backpack said that in one day, the organization received over 10,000 donations from Bills fans totaling over $260,000. The program has now increased its efforts because of Covid-19, according to its website.

Bills fans are known for having a charitable heart. Three years ago, when the Bengals beat the Ravens to give the Bills their first playoff berth since 1999, the Bills Mafia coughed up plenty of cash for Cincinnati quarterback Andy Dalton's foundation.

Ravens fans took notice of the generosity of Bills fans and thanked them to donate money, with some Baltimore Ravens fans donating money to Oishei Children's Hospital in Buffalo.

Fans of the Buffalo football team show appreciation and respect in a very powerful way: With their wallets.

After their win on Saturday, the Bills are headed to the AFC championship, where they'll play the Kansas City Chiefs to determine who goes to the Super Bowl.
