Worst hit

New England's Brandon Meriweather on Todd Heap. The Patriots safety launched himself to deliver a helmet-to-helmet hit on Heap, an illegal blow that has since become the NFL's textbook example of what not to do on the football field. Heap missed only a handful of plays, but he felt the effects of the neck injury long afterward.
