Bengals fans say thanks by donating to Bortles Foundation for beating Steelers

Thanks, man: Bengals fans are donating to Blake Bortles' foundation for knocking the hated Steelers out of the playoffs.

The Bengals and Steelers are longtime AFC North rivals and have played some of the most contentious games in the National Football League over the past few seasons.

According to First Coast News, over 100 Cincinnati Bengals fans expressed their gratitude towards the Jacksonville Jaguars for defeating their divisional rivals the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday by donating to the Blake Bortles Foundation.

Donations amounting to almost $5,000 have been made to the Blake Bortles Foundation following the result of the game. This kind of gesture from Cincinnati fans, however, is the unique type of rivalry practice that is not violent and vitriolic in nature, but rather altruistic. He says he appreciates the contributions and adds that Bengals fans "should know their support will make a difference".

Bortles, who has been criticized heavily for his uneven play this season, went 14-26 for 214 yards and touchdown, and perhaps most importantly he did not turn the ball over.

This is not the first time the Bengals have acted charitably between National Football League teams. According to the charity's website, money is used to help children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) and the foundation does that by providing opportunities through partnerships with organizations in Jacksonville.

Earlier this month, Buffalo Bills fans began donating to the foundation of Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton to thank him for beating the Ravens, which led to the Bills gaining their first playoff berth since 1999.
