The Ravens’ loss meant the Bills are headed to the playoffs instead. Dalton’s pass came on fourth-and-12 with 44 seconds left.

“I think I’m the hottest guy in Buffalo right now,” Dalton said Monday morning. “According to my Twitter, I think everybody’s loving us right now. Obviously that’s a crazy fan base and they’re all pretty excited.”

Bills fans have been donating to Dalton’s foundation in $17 increments in honor of the 17 years they waited for a postseason appearance.

“We’re appreciative of that,” Dalton said. “Obviously they’re helping out a good cause. It’s been pretty fun to see the reaction we’ve gotten.”

As of Tuesday morning, 4,500 people had contributed $104,000 to the foundation since Sunday night.
