Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton received the expected standing ovation from Bills fans at New Era Field as he was introduced before Sunday's preseason game.
Dalton stopped on his way to the field to wave. A video thank-you message for donations to his foundation played on the screen.
A standing ovation they’ve been waiting eight months to give.

Dalton then threw a 57-yard touchdown pass to John Ross on the first play from scrimmage to give the Bengals at 7-0 lead.
Ross, a 2017 first-round pick, made a few moves at the goal line to elude two Bills tacklers.
