Bengals fans give to Blake Bortles charity for beating Steelers

Now, Bengals fans are paying it forward with donations to Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles' charity, the BB5 Foundation, for ending the hated Steelers' season.

While the Cincinnati Bengals did not qualify for the playoffs, fans are still celebrating the season of giving more than two weeks into the new year.

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

Buffalo fans then bombarded Dalton's foundation with generous donations that eventually totaled around $300,000. Bortles' foundation gives back to local Jacksonville communities.
