In a statement released by the foundation, Bortles praised Cincinnati fans for their generous support, saying "they should know their support will make a difference".

Bengals supporters are paying forward another act of generosity from a different National Football League fan base.

Shortly after Andy Dalton's 49-yard fourth quarter touchdown pass beat the Ravens and sent the Bills to the playoffs, thankful Bills fans started donating to Dalton's charity en masse. Buffalo fans then bombarded Dalton's foundation with generous donations that eventually totaled around $300,000. Bortles' foundation gives back to local Jacksonville communities.
