Watch Patriot Brandin Cooks Get Nailed in the Crotch and Then Powerbombed After Trying to Leap Over Player

Every so often, a football player thinks it wise to try and leap over an opponent, and every so often it works.

That was not the case at this year’s Super Bowl, when the Patriot Brandin Cooks tried to jump over Eagles safety Rodney McLeod, and failed spectacularly. Enjoy another angle here:

It was the third down in the second quarter, and Patriots quarterback Tom Brady handed off to Cooks, who ran straight at McLeod and tried to leap over him. Unfortunately for the Patriots wide receiver, McLeod remained upright and after delivering a blow with his helmet to Cook’s crotch, slammed him down with a filthy powerbomb.

In memoriam of Cook’s botched leapfrog, enjoy a compilation of the WWE’s best powerbombs:
