popping noise from cylinder opening

HI everyone saltbob here I have a F-250 5.4 Triton engine 2001 appx 122000
miles on it all of a sudden while driving it started makeing a very loud popping
noise first thought I had a blown tire but it would get louder as engine rev.
I opened the hood it was jumping fire on one cylinder large hole where spark
plug goes, the plastic cap and long spring was off spark plug, the rubber boot
was split. the spark plug was on top of the motor with ehd of spark plug bent
where you would you would set the gap I"m old school and don"t know what
going on because there is a large deep hole where spark plug goes, I can"t
find any where to screw a new plug in allso plug threads on end looks bad If
anyone in HOT ROD LAND have a clue to what happend please let me know. I
have 2 cars 1 truck both cars need transmissiom, I"m almost down to walking.
SALTBOB Thanks hot rod people
