Bengals wide receiver Jerome Simpson's gained notoriety for some, ahem, less than smart things, legally speaking.

But on Sunday against Arizona, Simpson nearly broke the internet with a ridiculous touchdown leap, jumping over linebacker Daryl Washington.

You can peep video of the jump over at NFL.com and as you'll be able to tell from the GIF below (via Timothy Burke), it is absolutely worth your using your mouse.
