Early Report: Johnny Manziel, Landry Jones to Start Today

According to two of the best in the business, Johnny Manziel and Landry Jones are officially expected to start today's Cleveland Browns Vs Pittsburgh Steelers game.

What we all expected is all but confirmed as Josh McCown and Ben Roethlisberger are expected to sit out today's rivals matchup between the Browns and the Steelers.

Adam Schefter was first with the Sunday early morning report that Landry Jones would officially be starting over Big Ben:

It was surprising that Ben was even talked about as playing today based on his injury to his foot last week. ESPN is also reporting that Ben will be active and serve as Jones' backup, another sign that he wasn't far away from playing today.

For his part, Jones has played okay in the 3 games he has been in this year. His worst game came against the Kansas City Chiefs where he threw 2 interceptions and had a 55% completion percentage. With weapons like Antonio Brown and Martavis Bryant, most believe Jones will be fine.

Not having Le'Veon Bell hurts but DeAngelo Williams has played well in his stead and the Browns defense has been bad all year long, especially against the run.

Ian Rapoport reported that Johnny Manziel would start for the Browns but that McCown would not be active, with Austin Davis instead being the backup:

Manziel's season has been steadier than last year, but that is not saying much. His brush with the law is still under review by the league. On the field, Manziel has given some reason for hope while also displaying the erratic play that has created concerns. 

Big plays, such as those to Travis Benjamin, have been balanced out by an inability to make throws from the pocket and keep the chains moving. For the season, Manziel has only thrown 1 INT, on 83 throws. However he has fumbled the ball 4 times and taken a number of sacks he should not have.

The battle between Jones and Manziel will be of polar opposites. Manziel left college as a redshirt sophomore, he could still be starting for Texas A&M this year, while Jones came back for his redshirt senior season. Manziel was a 1st round pick while Jones wasn't taken till the 4th round. Manziel was forced to play his rookie season, when he would have been a RS junior, while Jones got his first NFL snaps this season, 3 years after his RS senior year.

Manziel is smaller, faster and more dynamic while Jones is the more traditional, slower pocket QB. The talent around both QBs is not comparable but watching how these two, who have come from opposite directions, compare today will be fascinating.
