Johnny Manziel has a very rookie-like first half against Bengals

Johnny Manziel Cleveland Browns

Johnny Manziel still doesn’t seem overwhelmed by the moment, personally, but his performance is all a part of the Browns being completely overwhelmed by the Cincinnati Bengals in the first half. They trail the team from Cincitucky 20-0. Manziel sported a 12.0 QB rating at halftime as he went four for nine for 22 yards

Joe Haden, Justin Gilbert leave Bengals game with injuries

Cleveland Browns Joe Haden Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Cleveland Browns were off to an awful start trailing the Bengals 17-0 when things got much worse. Joe Haden slowly walked (limped?) to the locker room. It was a big mystery because nobody on the TV broadcast noticed any play where Haden might have been injured. And it was just part of the disaster

Karlos Dansby Cleveland Browns

As recent as Sunday morning, Cleveland Browns linebacker Karlos Dansby thought he could be one of the active members of his team as they host the division-leading Cincinnati Bengals.

LeBron James Johnny Manziel Nike

After Johnny Manziel spent many nights court-side for LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers (with some allegedly to his detriment), it is only fair that the four-time MVP returns the favor as the rookie quarterback is set to make his first NFL start.

Browns waive Billy Cundiff, sign Garrett Hartley

Tampa Tribune

It was only a matter of time, but the Cleveland Browns have waived kicker Billy Cundiff. Though converting all 28 of is point after attempts (and having his coach’s support), Cundiff had become as unreliable as quarterback Brian Hoyer, missing five field goals in the team’s last five games. Taking his place will be long-time

Johnny Manziel seems unaffected by hype surrounding his first start

Johnny Manziel Cavs game Cleveland Browns

The world now knows that it’s Johnny Manziel’s first start in Cleveland, but the confident-bordering-on-cocky QB from Texas A&M does not seem all that wide-eyed. I guess that shouldn’t come as a surprise considering how big a stage Johnny Manziel has been on already, but it’s still somewhat refreshing after the meek Colt McCoy and

Johnny Manziel, Browns will be on FOX for second straight week

Was Manziel laughing at this bill?

Being an NFL fan today requires you to learn about television contracts. The usual setup where NFC teams are featured on FOX and AFC teams are on CBS is being thrown for a loop as FOX has started “flexing” games involving two AFC teams onto its network. They did it last week with the Browns-Colts

Derek Anderson could start against the Browns

Derek-Anderson-Pro-Bowl

I never root for injuries in the NFL, but they are one thing in the game you can certainly bet on. You don’t tend to bet on them occurring via car crashes though, and that’s what happened to Cam Newton this week. It was an ugly crash and the result was a couple of fractures

Johnny Manziel Cleveland Browns

Not that any of this is a shock, but Johnny Manziel is almost assuredly going to get his first NFL start this week against the Cincinnati Bengals. I can only imagine what the reception for Johnny Manziel will be like if he gets announced as a starter and has a chance to do his money

Johnny Manziel Cavs game Cleveland Browns

Cleveland Browns head coach Mike Pettine may have said that the team believes Brian Hoyer gives him the best chance to win football games, but FOX Sports’ Jay Glazer reports that there was a bit more to the decision to roll with Hoyer despite his penchant for back-shattering interceptions.
