(610 Sports) – Kansas City Chiefs fans turned the Buffalo Bills' 13 seconds of heartbreak into a heartfelt display of sportsmanship, following the Chiefs' 42-36 OT win over the Bills in the divisional round of the NFL playoffs.

Oishei Children’s Hospital in Buffalo took to Twitter on Monday to thank Chiefs fans for donating $178,000 in increments of $13, a nod to the final 13 seconds of Sunday's game where Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs moved the ball 44 yards in just 10 seconds, setting up Harrison Butker to make a 49-yard field goal to send the game into OT, where Kansas City would eventually prevail on an 8-yard TD pass to Travis Kelce in the back corner of the end zone.

"Despite a heartbreaking @BuffaloBills loss Sunday night, our hearts are warm this morning waking up to $13 donations coming from @ChiefsMMZ @Chiefs fans! Thank you all so much, your support helps ensure great care for the kids and families in (Western New York)."

The money was donated to the Patricia Allen Fund, a fundraising effort that began last season after fans donated more than a million dollars to the hospital in honor of the passing of Josh Allen’s grandmother.
