Ben Roethlisberger's fighting technique is flopping like a dead fish

Sweep the leg!

Ben Roethlisberger is an excellent quarterback and a terrible fighter — that’s what we learned on Sunday against the Browns.

Browns lineman Emmanuel Ogbah shoved over Ben like he was a sack of potatoes, which Roethlisberger emulated perfectly. Then he went for the Karate Kid technique of ... sweeping the leg.

Well, kind of. It was more a halfhearted lunge. Like a seal trying to enter water and landing back on the ice. He didn’t ever try to swat with his arm or anything, he just dove head-first and hoped.

After the game, Antonio Brown jokingly went to Roethlisberger’s defense.

The Killer B’s gotta stick together.
