Video: Bills K misses extra point, hits himself with helmet

Dan Carpenter missed an extra point and then mistakenly hit himself.

After Bills running back Karlos Williams plunged into the end zone to give Buffalo a 13-0 lead on the Jets, Carpenter missed an extra point attempt – but managed to hit himself right in the beak with his own helmet after slamming it on the ground.

The embarrassing video is making the rounds, with some Bills fans calling the clip a microcosm of the struggling kicker’s season.

Things don't go well for Dan Carpenter Sunday.

The stats don’t lie – the new longer extra point attempt is wreaking havoc on Carpenter. Sunday’s shank was his fifth PAT miss of this season (he was 33 for 38 going into the game). He’s made 20 of his 24 field goal attempts.

Maybe if Carpenter were as accurate with his kicks as he is with his helmet, this whole thing might have never happened.
