Bills Mafia — the infamous name for the Buffalo Bills fanbase — is not only known for their rowdy tailgate parties, but also for their generosity. That's why it isn't shocking to learn that Bills Mafia has stepped up with another classy gesture following Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa's scary head injury on Thursday.

As soon as Tagovailoa suffered his injury, Bills fans took to Twitter to try and rally donations for the Tua Foundation; a charity started by Tagovailoa. The Buffalo News reports that "over 1,000" donations were made to the foundation, proving just how classy the fanbase can be in the time of need.

Tua Foundation executive director Burt Trembly told The Buffalo News that the charity is "grateful for all the support" it's received. According to the foundation's website, it's a "nonprofit organization dedicated to the support of youth initiatives, health and wellness, and other charitable causes."

Tagovailoa also suffered a frightening injury when his Dolphins faced the Bills in Week 3. It makes sense that Buffalo fans would have a unique connection to the injured QB, highlighted by one of the donations being $21.19, which is the score that Miami beat Buffalo by last weekend.

This isn't even the first time that Bills Mafia has stepped up for another team's player. In addition to helping out their own players, they have also donated to Lamar Jackson's favorite charity, Blessings in a Backpack, and even raised over $100,000 for the Food Bank of Northwest Louisiana.

Bills fans might love to put each other through foldable tables and maybe that does rub some people the wrong way. But one thing can't be denied about the Buffalo faithful: they're good people who do the right thing when someone is in need.
