PHOTO: The Lions may not have scored in the end zone on Saturday, but these bats did

After a game like that, this is what we’re talking about.

The Detroit Lions had a very bad Saturday night. In their third preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens, the Lions scored a mere nine points. Though the offense moved the ball here and there, they failed to score a touchdown the entire game. In fact, the Lions first-team offense has now gone three preseason games without reaching the end zone even once. Well, they did, but they didn’t with Ameer Abdullah’s touchdown in the second quarter getting called back for a holding penalty on Cole Wick.

The Ravens, on the other hand, had no trouble scoring any touchdowns. Baltimore finished the game with three trips into the end zone on their way to a dominant 30-9 performance.

But the Ravens weren’t the only ones getting it on in the end zone:

Karl Merton Ferron, photographer for the Baltimore Sun, caught these two bats... hugging intimately in the end zone as Ravens receiver Jeremy Butler scored on a 25-yard pass from Ryan Mallett to put Baltimore up 13-3 in the first half.

The bats refused to comment on the play after the game, simply stating, “We’re on to Transylvania.”
