Ravens WR Zay Flowers lives up to his name by celebrating his TD against the Chargers with a bouquet toss… but Lamar Jackson doesn’t seem too impressed!


Ravens’ Zay Flowers lived up to his last name while celebrating a touchdown against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday Night Football.

The 23-year-old rookie was on the receiving end of a 10-yard pass from quarterback Lamar Jackson that gave Baltimore the lead at SoFi Stadium with just over 10 minutes to play in the second quarter after a 0-3 tie. disadvantage. in the first.

He then motioned for his teammates to stay behind him as he threw the football over his head and pretended it was a bouquet of flowers.

And while none of the other Ravens players fought each other to catch the pigskin, in true Bridesmaids fashion, fellow wide receiver Rashod Bateman got down on one knee and joined in on Flowers’ festivities.

Footage from the sidelines showed Flowers gesturing with his hands to explain his celebration to Jackson, who seemed unimpressed by his teammate’s antics.
