Last season, Buffalo fans donated en masse to Cincinnati quarterback Andy Dalton's charity after his week 17 touchdown toss against Baltimore put the Bills in the playoffs for the first time in 17 years.
While the Eagles weren't facing anything close to that sort of playoff drought going into Sunday's Bears vs. Vikings matchup, they've decided to similarly thank Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky by donating to one of his supported charities.
Trubisky (as well as the Eagles' own Mack Hollins) was sporting Thumbs Up Mission-customized cleats in week 13. As a thank you for taking down the Vikings 24-10 in the last game of the regular season, securing the Eagles the last playoff spot in the NFC, Eagles fans began donating in large numbers to the charity.
Thumbs Up Mission supports families where a child or parent is facing cancer. Through family retreats, the charity aims to "battle fear by infusing hope, inspiring laughter, and instilling an eternal perspective in each family we serve".
The Eagles play the Bears in the last Wildcard Weekend game on Sunday. While Eagles fans won't be thanking Trubisky if he wins this week, hopefully the donations continue to flow.
