That’s got to hurt: Buffalo Bills kicker Dan Carpenter accidentally smacked himself in the face with his helmet during Sunday’s game against the New York Jets.

Frustrated that he’d missed an extra point during the second quarter, Carpenter threw his helmet on the ground – and it bounced right back up at him, hitting him on the nose. Watch the video below:

Fortunately, the mistake didn’t cost the Bills the game: They beat the Jets 22-17, bringing their record to 8-8.

Still, the Bills won’t be heading to the playoffs. They were eliminated from contention in Week 15.
