CLEVELAND – Call him Johnny Lightning.
Johnny Manziel threw a 60-yard touchdown on his first pass Sunday, hooking up with wide receiver Travis Benjamin. Manziel faked a hand-off and hit a streaking Benjamin, who got behind Titans cornerback Coty Sensabaugh, who was starting in place of Jason McCourty.
Shortly after that he connected for another touchdown, bringing the score to 14-0 still in the first quarter.
Manziel is making his third NFL start, taking over for Josh McCown, who sustained a concussion last week. Manziel came off the bench last week and threw one TD but had three turnovers.
The Browns didn’t stop before halftime though. Just after the two-minute warning, Travis Benjamin took it to the house, returning a punt 78 yards for a touchdown.
The Browns lead 21-0 going into the half.
The Titans made an effort at a comeback in the second half, scoring twice to close the gap to 21-14.
But Johnny Manziel wasn’t done. He threw a bomb to Travis Benjamin in the fourth, giving the Browns the 28-14 advantage. Benjamin scored three touchdowns in the game.
