Bengals fans pledge over $5K to Blake Bortles’ charity
Shredding the Steelers has earned Blake Bortles a new pocket of supporters — in Cincinnati.
In the wake of Jacksonville’s 45-42 playoff win over Pittsburgh, Bengals fans have come out of the woodwork to thank the Jaguars quarterback by donating to the Blake Bortles Foundation, per ESPN.com’s Michael DiRocco.
Who know what this could lead to? If Bortles and the Jaguars take out the high-and-mighty Patriots on Sunday, Bengals fans won’t be the only ones chiming in. Followers of the Cardinals, Falcons, Ravens, Bills, Panthers, Bears, Browns, Cowboys, Broncos, Lions, Packers, Texans, Colts, Chiefs, Rams, Chargers, Dolphins, Vikings, Saints, Giants, Jets, Raiders, Eagles, Steelers, 49ers, Seahawks, Buccaneers, Titans and Redskins will know just how to say thanks. Alright, maybe not the Steelers.
You hear it from guys like Capela, Durant said. Usually he’s catching the ball and laying it up from CP [Chris Paul] or James Harden. His job is not as hard. When your job is that hard, you know you can’t just come out there and say s— like that. I don’t expect that from CP and James and [Trevor] Ariza and the rest of the guys like that because they know how hard it is to come out and do that every night. Capela, catch and dunk every night. It’s pretty easy for him.
Should Houston (32-12) and Golden State (37-10) finish the regular season with identical records, the Rockets will be granted the higher seed and have home-court advantage. Houston took two of the three contests on the season.
Houston’s revamped roster featuring Paul, Luc Mbah a Moute and PJ Tucker, partnered with the franchise player in Harden, has NBA fans thinking it might be an interesting series should these two squads face each other in the playoffs.
