Being a punter is tough, especially in the pouring the rain. New Orleans Saints punter Thomas Morstead found that out the hard way early in the game against the Seattle Seahawks, as the ball went through his hands and hit him right below the belt.

You can see the GIF of what happened below.

Understandably, Morstead didn't get the best punt off. The combination of getting hit in the man area and the messy conditions caused the punt to go just 16 yards.

Don't worry, Morstead, we understand.
