Bills quarterback Josh Allen is being embraced like never before in Buffalo this week, and it’s making him realize he wants to stay in Buffalo forever.

Allen led the Bills to a win over the Seahawks on Sunday after the unexpected death of his grandmother on Saturday. Bills fans rallied to show their support by donating to Oishei Children’s Hospital in memory of Patricia Allen, and Josh Allen said that means the world to him.

“My family is forever engraved here, myself included. I don’t ever want to leave,” Allen said, via ESPN. “I want to play for as long as I can and give back to this community and Bills Mafia.”

More than $315,000 has now been donated in memory of Allen’s grandma. Most of the more than 16,000 donations were made in the amount of $17, for Allen’s jersey number. Donations can be made here.

  1. Buffalo is a forgotten gem of a city. If you haven’t been there in the past 5 years – I highly suggest it.

  2. I remember when Andy Dalton hit a late touchdown in a meaningless week 17 game a few years ago, it sent the Bills to the playoffs for the first time in my kids’ lifetime. Bills fans responded by sending 100s of thousands of dollars to Dalton’s charity as a thank you. All class.

  3. You never hear anybody say anything negative about Bills fans. They’ve suffered so much – so have Vikings fans.

  4. Buffalo people are the best. That’s why a ton of ex-players never went back to their original homes and retired here.

  5. I love the Patriots. If we are taking a back seat. Let it be to these guys. Done right. With class.

  6. Buffalo doesn’t seem to have the major inferiority complex to NYC that Boston does and they are in the same state.

  7. JA17 is a baller. A leader. A blue collar worker. Humble. Quick to take criticism & blame himself. He is reckless. Full of moxie. Top 3 most exciting QB’s to watch, for good or bad. He is Buffalo. He represents us perfectly. Baker Mayfield or Sam Darnold could win championships for their respective teams but I’ll take My Boy Blue regardless if he ever brings us the Lombardi. Be afraid Arizona because you are next. LFG

  8. Been to Buffalo several times. Always a pleasant experience. If the Steelers don’t win it all, I hope the Bills do!

  9. Since the departure of Jim Kelly there have been many quarterbacks that didn’t belong here and a few that weren’t given the nurturing and coaching to last here. With Josh, it is the perfect alignment of the two and we are lucky to have this situation! Let’s go Buffalo!

  10. Diehard Pats fan but good for josh and the city of Buffalo. Sean McDermott and Beene seem to get it. When the bills hired Rex Ryan, I was appalled for their long suffering fans, it’s good to see the Peguka’s admitted their mistake and lived in.

    Go get em bills! Happy to have you back! And the dolphins too! FLO is building up a great roster.

    As far as that person goes about the inferiority complex about NY. We were their little brother for decades. Consistently getting out butts kicked by them so we fought back. Some of my fellow Bostonians and new englanders go too far with their disgusting language towards Subban or Adam Jones.

    We are like Ohio state and New York is Michigan. It doesn’t matter what else happens, but YOU LIVE TO CRUSH NEW YORK. (But Buffalo is good to us)

  11. Good thing he isn’t in the NBA or ESPN would be brainwashing him to believe he needs to go LA or Miami to win a title. It’s illegal for a player to be happy in a small market in the NBA. It’s the one thing the NFL does right giving all it’s markets a fair chance.

  12. As a KC fan I like our fellow small market teams. There’s not many of us. I want Mahomes and KC to win about 5 super bowls but if someone just had to win one in between them, I’d be happy for Buffalo to be the team.

    Uh huh……When they turn on you, and they will, you’ll feel differently.

    You don’t know Buffalo People. Once you get Buffalove, they never turn on you.
    If you are on the Hate’m List say like Bon Jovi, you can Never get off.

  14. We loved him in Laramie too! Always exciting to watch and a great person. Glad to see him having success in Buffalo on and off the field.

  15. Heart warming story! Props to all involved, particularly the Bills’ fans who have had their share of frustration and disappointment over the years. May this year be special. It already is!

  16. I’ve been pulling for Buffalo since the 1st time I saw Allen play. He”s the real deal. Drafting Josh Allen a year later is the sole reason Buffalo is able to live down trading their pick for Kansas City to get Mahomes. After Mahomes theres nobody I’d rather have than Mahomes. For sure when taking age into account but hes making a case to be #2 in the league regardless. Chiefs players going out of their way to stop Allen colliding with the bench was awesome. I hope the world gets to see this infamous throw off between Allen & Mahomes. Congrats Bill’s. You turned a mistake over half the league made (or would’ve made) into the best consolation prize possible. You also got an extra first round pick for a gm that seems to know how to use them. That’s just as rare as Allen’s arm strength!

    How much did Allen donate ? Just curious.
    ——————
    He does a ton of work for that hospital, that’s why fans decided to donate there.
