But the case can be made Bortles put in a clutch performance last Sunday when he led the Jags' to a stunning 45-42 upset of the Pittsburgh Steelers in the divisional round.

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

Well, let's just say that it has everything to do with the fact that Jaguars eliminated the Steelers from the playoffs.

Authorities did not release the names of the injured police officer and sheriff's deputies, nor their injuries or conditions. Multiple agencies then began "actively looking for the suspect" and issued emergency alerts to area residents, Faris said.

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.

Now, Bengals fans are following suit by rewarding Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles for defeating their division rival in the playoffs.

Cincinnati sports radio host Mo Egger spearheaded the campaign, using his show and social media to coax donations from fans.

Bortles, who is taking his team to the AFC Championship for the first time since 1999, has had his ups and downs during his four years in the league, but this season has been his most talked about.

Bortles hasn't exactly dazzled in the postseason, as he actually put up more rushing yards (88) than passing (87) in Jacksonville's 10-3 victory over the Buffalo Bills in the wild-card round. He says he appreciates the contributions and adds that Bengals fans "should know their support will make a difference". They began flooding Bortles' foundation with donations. According to the Blake Bortles Foundation Facebook page, the foundation uses its funds to help "children with intellectual and developmental challenges in their pursuit of full, independent lives AND provide support to first responders, with the goal of improving their ability to safely carry out their vital lifesaving work".

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.
