The Awesome Reason Bengals Fans Are Donating To Blake Bortles

Leading up to their playoff game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles was deemed by many critics and opposing players as unfit to lead his team deeper into the postseason.

I encourage you to thank Blake Bortles by donating to his foundation today.

One of Bengals fans' favorite pastimes is devising ways to torment Steelers backers.

So Bengals fans, frustrated both by their team's toothless performance against their archrival and by the Steelers' response to it, including a touchdown celebration by Pittsburgh's JuJu Smith-Schuster a couple of weeks later that mimicked his concussion-inducing hit on Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict, had to bite their tongue and bide their time. "I greatly appreciate the support displayed by Bengals fans and they should know their support will make a difference".

Airbus deliveries in 2017 increased for the 15 year in a row, reaching a new record of 718 aircraft delivered to 85 customers. Emirates has urged Airbus to market the aircraft more widely across the world to ensure future production of the jet.

The donations are already approaching $5,000, according to First Coast News, which reached Bortles for comment.

Bengals supporters are paying forward another act of generosity from a different National Football League fan base. He urged them "pay it forward" after Buffalo Bills fans contributed to the Andy Dalton Foundation following the Bengals' defeat of the Ravens.

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. The Blake Bortles Foundation supports Jacksonville communities in need. The mission of the foundation serves two purposes, supporting both children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, as well as first responders in both Jacksonville and Oviedo, Florida.

The development was significant enough that it prompted Bortles, who is now preparing to face the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship game, to release a statement on behalf of his charity.
