Browns starting quarterback Josh McCown was concussed on his helicopter fumble, which means Johnny Manziel got his first regular season action of the year. As a rookie, Manziel had two interceptions and one rushing touchdown in 2014.
Now, Manziel has his first career passing touchdown. It came on a 54-yard bomb to Travis Benjamin on 3rd-and-19 over Antonio Cromartie.
If Manziel can keep throwing bombs for touchdowns, it could be tough for the Browns to go back to McCown once he’s healthy. It’s good to see Manziel, who is exciting to watch, start to adjust to the NFL game under the tutelage of offensive coordinator John DeFilippo.
