Bengals fans donating money to Bortles' charity for ending the Steelers' season

The Steelers are by far the most hated team in Cincinnati, so after the Jags ended their season on Sunday, local radio host Mo Egger decided that donating money to the BB5 Foundation would be the flawless way to thank Bortles and the Jaguars.

More than 100 Bengals fans had combined to give almost $5,000 to the charitable cause, according to NFL.com.

Jaguars fans weren't the only ones rooting against the Steelers this past weekend.

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.

Airbus wins 2017 order race after last-minute sales spree
Airbus has said it will have no other choice but to halt the costly A380 programme if Emirates does not place another order. Leahy, the Airbus chief operating officer, said on Monday that the A380's best days were ahead.

This act was not taken to make amends for the on-field shenanigans from the Bengals-Jaguars game earlier this season. So much so, in fact, that fans have even taken to donating money to Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles' charity.

When the Cincinnati Bengals beat the Baltimore Ravens in Week 17, paving the way for the Buffalo Bills to reach the playoffs, thankful Bills fans showed their appreciation by donating to Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton's charitable foundation.

"Fans are at the core of the football experience and it's truly exciting and rewarding when they band together, regardless of the team they cheer for, to make a positive impact in the lives of others".

Dalton noted that numerous donations were for $17, which represented the 17 seasons between playoff berths for the Bills. This could be a lucrative Sunday for the Blake Bortles Foundation. The foundation also aids first responders in Jacksonville. He says he appreciates the contributions and adds that Bengals fans "should know their support will make a difference". Meanwhile, the Steelers locked up the No. 2 seed in the AFC playoffs and seemed destined for a conference championship showdown with New England.
