Ahmad Brooks leaps over Cam Newton on slight offsides penalty [GIF]

The San Francisco 49ers have made two huge goal line stands against the Carolina Panthers, and Ahmad Brooks has been a key part of both sides. Of course, as has become a weekly occurrence with Brooks, he was flagged for an offsides penalty.

Yea, that's just a little bit offsides. Brooks is an incredibly athletic linebacker, but sometimes it gets the best of him. It is also possible he was trying to reenact his most notable highlight from college. In that play, he actually timed it right and sacked the quarterback without getting flagged.

The offsides didn't hurt the 49ers as it was a goal to go situation. They made a big stop on the next play to force a field goal. Brooks made the mistake, but overall, he has had a strong first half. He has had two huge tackles on these stops. But maybe next time he'll time the leap just a little bit better.
