Cleveland Browns rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel was seen on camera laughing after the Titans scored a 75-yard touchdown to take a 28-3 lead in the second quarter of Sunday's game against the Tennessee Titans.
On Wednesday, Manziel, who did not play in the game, explained why he was laughing. From Cleveland.com:
"I guess when things are kind of going that bad, you can almost -- instead of getting mad -- you kind of have to laugh it off every now and then,'' Manziel told cleveland.com. "Luckily for us, we turned it around, and the outcome was a lot better than it was then.''
The Browns rallied to win the game 29-28, and head coach Mike Pettine later said he did not object to Manziel laughing at that moment.
The Browns selected Manziel with the No. 22 pick of the 2014 NFL Draft after he played two seasons at Texas A&M. Manziel accounted for 9,989 total yards and 93 touchdowns over two seasons with the Aggies and won the Heisman Trophy in 2012.
Manziel has spent most of his time on the bench this season, attempting only one pass, after veteran Brian Hoyer beat him out for the Browns starting quarterback job during training camp.
