Donations amounting to almost $5,000 have been made to the Blake Bortles Foundation following the result of the game.

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".

Cincinnati Bengals' fans. These fans started pouring in their donations to thank Bortles and his team for defeating the Steelers, a team they were extremely happy to watch lose. Bills fans dished their financial support after Dalton threw a 49-yard touchdown pass on 4th-and-12 to beat the Baltimore Ravens in week 17, and send the Bills to the playoffs for the first time since 1999.

Dalton noted that numerous donations were for $17, which represented the 17 seasons between playoff berths for the Bills. Bortles threw for 214 yards and a touchdown in his team's win and stayed composed in the fourth-quarter to drive the Jaguars down field. The foundation supports children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities as well as first responders in Jacksonville and Oviedo. The Blake Bortles Foundation supports Jacksonville communities in need.

He now enters the biggest game of his career against the New England Patriots for the AFC Championship. He evidently suggested that Bengals fans "pay it forward' as Bills fans to for their players' charities".
