Browns Tap Johnny Manziel to Start on Sunday

Get ready for the Cleveland show, as the rookie QB makes his first NFL start on Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals. Heeeeere's Johnny!

Mark your calendars! On Sunday, December 14th, Johnny Manziel will make his NFL debut against the Cincinnati Bengals. The Heisman winner is hoping he'll be able to lead his Cleveland Browns to their first playoff appearance in nearly 13 seasons…and prove to the world that he can live up to all the hype that surrounds him. Is the young gun going to become a superstar and build a dynamic 1-2 punch with his receiving god, Josh Gordon? If he does, it'll be an even bigger story than when Tim Tebow led the failing Broncos into the playoffs…and you'll wish you already had an official Johnny Football jersey, available here.

By the way, has Johnny always been destined for greatness? Check out this clip from the Scout archives of "Money Manziel" getting out of trouble and chucking the ball downfield back in high school.
