Tom Brady isn't worrying whether he has a broken nose. No word on what super-model wife Gisele Bundchen  thinks, though.

The New England Patriots quarterback was bloodied in their season-opening 34-13 victory over the Tennessee Titans on Sunday. He wore a bandage during the game after getting sacked by Titans defensive end Kamerion Wimbley and was wearing another following it.

When asked by a Boston Globe reporter if it was broken, Brady said, "I don't know. I have no idea what a broken nose feels like."

Brady appeared no worse for the wear, completing 23 of 31 passes for 236 yards and two touchdowns.

"It doesn't look pretty, but it probably looks a lot worse than it feels," Brady said during an interview on WEEI radio.

Since Brady likes a change of style, maybe this one will do.

"I never mind a little blood," Brady said, adding that it's "not my usual look. That was the only good [hit] I took. It's always fun winning."
