Watch: Cleveland Browns Johnny Manziel Makes NFL Debut
The heated quarterback competition between the Cleveland Browns’ quarterbacks Brian Hoyer and Johnny Manziel met NFL preseason tonight. Here’s a peek at some of Manziel’s moves and plays he made, which has apparently earned him the start in the Week 2 preseason matchup against the Washington Redskins.
First pass of six yards completed by Manziel. Whew.

Johnny Manziel: 2-2 for 8 yards. If you extrapolate that over the course of the season, he'll be 2000-2000 for 8000 yards.

According to the Browns’ coach Mike Pettine, he had claimed he the team would name a starting quarterback before the third preseason game. It sounds at this point like Pettine is confident enough to at least let Manziel start next week. This could be a sign of what is to come when the regular season rolls in.
