Buffalo Bills kicker Dan Carpenter was off target with the boot early today but his helmet-bouncing skills are top notch - albeit dangerous to his own health.

Carpenter missed an extra-point conversion during his side's final regular season game against AFC East rivals the New York Jets.

After the failed attempt, he took the frustration out on his helmet, throwing it onto the ground before it bounced back and hit him square in the face.

The blow to the face may have done the trick with Carpenter kicking three field goals following the helmet-bounce as the Bills beat the Jets 22-17.
