Punters usually aren't stars in the NFL. But don't tell that to Pat McAfee, who has carved out a lucrative second career as an NFL personality after being one of the most electric punters the league. He's leveled kick returners, recovered his own onside kick and made two Pro Bowls in his eight-year career.

But McAfee could sling it a bit too. Unfortunately, McAfee's first NFL pass attempt was spoiled by a truly terrible dropped pass from Dewey McDonald.

The drop would immediately come back to bite the Indianapolis Colts, as the Dallas Cowboys would score on their very next drive.

Ultimately the play didn't matter all that much, as Indianapolis would go on to lose, 42-7.
