08:01 AM ET 01.11 | Haloti Ngata turned Ben Roethlisberger's nose sideways in one of the season's more graphic moments, and while Ngata was fined, the Ravens aren't about to tiptoe around the Steelers quarterback. ... "He's a Miami guy," said Harbaugh, who also played for the RedHawks as a defensive back. "He's a tough guy. He had the broken nose. I was glad we broke his nose and then I was very impressed that he played through it. Obviously, you can throw very effectively with a broken nose -- he proved that."

When I was in MS, I gave it no thought, other than when it was New Years earlier out here.

Overall, it sucks.

Something about the mythical title of greatest team in the entire known universe or a similar metaphor like that.

I still like Seymour putting Ben on his butt. Broken nose was good but Seymour knocked "Big Ben" down with one punch.

I hate these teams, but I love their games against each other.
