Jan. 5 (UPI) -- The Buffalo Bills came through on their promise to gift wings to the Cincinnati Bengals.

Buffalo tweeted about the upcoming shipment on Thursday. The Bills partnered with Duff's Famous Wings for the gesture. Duff's is supplying 1,440 wings, 90 pounds of celery, 30 pounds of carrots, six gallons of blue cheese and nine gallons of Duff's wing sauce to the AFC North franchise.

Buffalo entered the playoffs after the Bengals beat the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. The Bengals victory, paired with the Bills' win against the Miami Dolphins, meant Buffalo claimed the No. 6 seed in the AFC Playoffs.

After the Bengals win, Buffalo sent the Bengals a letter on Twitter, promising the New York delicacy.

"Dear [Bengals]," the Bills tweeted.

"After we handled business in Miami, we needed you, and you came through big time. On behalf of this team, the people of the City of Buffalo, and Bills fans around the world, thank you. Thank you. THANK YOU!"

"Wings on us. [No really, we're sending wings]."

"With love, the Buffalo Bills."

The Bills face the Jacksonville Jaguars in a Wild Card round bout at 1:05 p.m. Sunday at EverBank Field in Jacksonville.

Cincinnati responded to the Bills coming through with the gesture by tweeting a GIF of its mascot, a Bengal tiger, licking its lips.

"Mood," the Bengals tweeted.

The Bills said they decided on the exact number of wings because that was the most that would fit in the truck.

Bills fans have also been very thankful to the Bengals, particularly quarterback Andy Dalton and wide receiver Tyler Boyd. The Buffalo supporters have donated more than $350,000 to those players' charities after they hooked up for the go-ahead score against the Ravens.
