Brandon Meriweather Says Hit On Todd Heap Was 'Split-Second Decision'

Brandon Meriweather didn't want to discuss it Sunday after the game, but on Monday, he addressed his hit on the Ravens' Todd Heap, saying that he was "playing aggressive and something happened." 

Meriweather went on to say that he "won't change my game, period" but added "I'm sorry it happened."

"I don't want to make a big deal out of it," he continued. "I was playing aggressive and something happened. I'm trying not to look at it and make it a big deal, like everybody else is doing. ... It's football. You've got a lot of good players, where you think one thing, and another thing can happen in a split-second. So, you've always got to make a split-second decision, and my split-second decision was to be aggressive and not wait for it."

Ray Anderson, NFL's executive vice president of football operations, didn't see it the same way. On "Mike and Mike" Tuesday morning, Anderson called Meriweather's hit "flagrant" and "egregious."
