Brandin Cooks really wanted that first down on New England’s second drive of the game. He tried so hard to get it. Unfortunately, he failed rather spectacularly trying to hurdle Rodney McLeod.

Making matters worse, the Patriots ended up botching the field-goal attempt afterward, meaning they got no points out of this drive.
Twitter had some hilarious reactions to the failed hurdle by Cooks.
