When he entered the league in 2010, Ndamukong Suh wasted no time establishing himself as one of the most talented players in the NFL. As a rookie, he racked up 17 quarterback hits, 13 tackles for loss and 10 sacks, earning himself a Pro Bowl nod and First-Team All-Pro honors in the process.

One would expect that a prodigious talent like Suh would be able to do it all, but there was one flaw in his game back then – his kicking ability.

All things considered, Suh actually looked pretty solid. His form was smooth, and the kick wasn't that far off, it just banged off the upright.

Suh was filling in for Jason Hanson, who had gone down with an injury before returning later in the game. His miss proved to be disastrous, though, as the New York Jets would ultimately go on to win the game in overtime.

Still, Suh made the Pro Bowl in four of his five years with the Detroit Lions and was also named a First-Team All-Pro on three occasions, so he more than made up for it over the course of his career.
