It wouldn’t be an NFL Sunday without a couple of hold-your-breath hits.

The scariest one this week came from the Pittsburgh Steelers’ Ryan Mundy as he laid out Raiders receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey in the end zone. The former 2009 seventh-overall-pick’s body went limp in mid-air after he received the helmet-to-helmet hit.

Heyward-Bey was carted off on a stretcher and gave a thumbs up as he was taken off the field. The Raiders announced that Heyward-Bey was taken to Eden Medical Center with a neck injury after he was left unconscious on the field.

There was no flag on the play for the hit.

The Raiders won the game in a nailbiter, taking the game from the Steelers on a 43-yard field goal off the leg of Sebastian Janikowski with no time left in the fourth quarter. The Steeelers are now 1-2, who could have seen that one coming.

Our thoughts go out to Heyward-Bey and his family, and hope the hit looked scarier than it really was. Take a look at the video of the hit below, but be warned, it’s violent.
