If ever you had doubts about the toughness of Pittsburgh’s Ben Roethlisberger (and if you did, who are you?) last night only furthered his legend.
Midway through the 2nd quarter, Big Ben went down hard after his ankle got fallen on and bent about 45º in the opposite direction. Just as any else would do (see: never) come the beginning of the 3rd quarter, out limps Ben on to the field to finish out the game he started.
A quarter later and the dude hits Antonio Brown for a game sealing 79 yard touchdown.
His post game comments about playing with a now-diagnosed high ankle sprain?
“At least it takes away pain in the thumb.” Yes, the broken thumb he was already playing the game with.
