severe coolant leak

Hello all, today in my 07 Nitro , as i got on the highway my temp gauge over heated so i pulled over immediately, I had a severe coolant leak coming from the lower corner (passenger side) of my Rad. I took a pic of the area, looks like a drain plug, but its soft black rubber , so im not sure what it is.It looked like it was actually leaking above that area, where the 2 plastic pieces meet, but it was difficult to tell. Any Ideas?

you sure that's not a rubber mount? leak is likely from the core, higher up
