BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — 12 Bills fans are going to the postseason game in Houston for free thanks to the generosity of multiple fans.

It all started when Charlotte-based Bills die-hard Leshawn Jerman tweeted he spent $2,200 on eight endzone tickets to the game in Houston. Two were for himself, but he said he would donate six tickets to fans who retweeted him.

That's when things took a turn. Fan favorite former wide receiver Stevie Johnson reimbursed Jerman for all eight tickets.

Then, two other fans stepped up to donate six more tickets for Jerman to give away.

At 5 p.m. Thursday, Jerman announced the winners. Here's how they all reacted to the news:

All fans who won will have to find their own way to Houston. Most of them tweeted they booked flights after learning the news.

This isn't Jerman's first big-hearted act towards fellow fans. In 2019, he gave away season tickets on Twitter.
