Week 11 was hectic to say the least for the Buffalo Bills. A massive snowstorm in the area prompted discussions of relocating their game against the Cleveland Browns, and the Detroit Lions stepped up to host the contest at their home, Ford Field.

Now the Bills have made an amazing gesture to thank the Lions for their support during a stressful time.

The team's Twitter account called Detroit the "best hosts for an unexpected home game." To celebrate the hospitality, Buffalo's organization is donating $20,000 to the Lions' foundation. And to cap off their thanks, the Bills sent Tim Hortons breakfast to their hosts.

This is a truly heartwarming exchange between the two teams. Buffalo's fan base is known for its numerous charitable endeavors, and the organizations followed suit with this donation.

The Bills will be able to extend their gratitude in-person as they square off against the Lions on Thanksgiving in Detroit. Buffalo enters that contest as a 9.5-point favorite, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds.
