Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel hasn’t had the NFL career that many people have expected him to have. Last Sunday, in the season opener, he took over for Josh McCown who went down with a concussion during the season opener against the New York Jets.
Despite the Browns falling in the game 31-10, Manziel came in and had a decent day throwing the ball. He went 13-24 with 182 yards and his first career touchdown, a 52-yard bomb to Travis Benjamin. That performance coupled with McCown still being out with the concussion has earned Manziel the starting job on Sunday as they welcome in the Tennessee Titans.

Manziel is currently 0-2 as a starter and in those games he went 13-26 with no touchdowns, two interceptions, and a dismal quarterback rating of just 2.6. He is going to have to have a much better showing when he welcomes in 2014 Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Mariota, who looked electric in a 42-14 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as he threw for four touchdowns.
