Pittsburgh's Primanti Bros. Sent 'Thank You' Sandwiches to the Bills for Beating the Jets

Rumor has it the sandwiches included were called the Almost Famous and the Terrible Twos.

Nothing shows appreciation like free sandwiches — at least that's what famed Pittsburgh sandwich shop Primanti Bros. figured when it sent the Buffalo Bills a few sandwiches as a "thank you." According to Yahoo Sports, the popular lunch institution was so grateful that the Bills beat the New York Jets, sending the Pittsburgh Steelers to the NFL playoffs, the owners sent a few sandwiches over to the Bills front office to show their appreciation. The restaurant took to Twitter to make the announcement and included the hashtag #ThanksFromTheBurgh.

The Primanti Bros. staff clearly had a close eye on the game, tweeting about the Bills' victory shortly after Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick's three interceptions in the fourth quarter. The restaurant immediately thanked the Bills for their win via social media and, in the team's honor, offered 48 cent wings to customers for the rest of the day. Looks like the Primanti Bros. know how to root for the home team.

There's no word on whether Table 86, the Pittsburgh restaurant owned by retired Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward, plans to sends some free food Buffalo's way.
