Big Ben Tough Guy
Big Ben Roethlisberger earned more tough guy points by playing with a horribly disfigured broken nose against the Baltimore Ravens.
Ben Roethlisberger turned in another solid performance by completing 22 of 38 passes for 253 yards and a touchdown in Pittsburgh's 13-10 win over the Baltimore Ravens.
Roethlisberger was accidentally hit in the face by Baltimore's Haloti Ngata in the 1st quarter. Ben's nose was obviously broken based on the way it was pointing east and west instead of north and south.
This brought to mind other tough guy moments in sports. Michael Jordan in the flu game against the Utah Jazz, Jack Youngblood playing in a Super Bowl with a broken leg, and Ronnie Lott opting to have a portion of his finger amputated in order to continue playing.
