Johnny Manziel replaces injured Josh McCown vs. Jets
Sunday September 13th, 2015

Browns backup quarterback Johnny Manziel took over for an injured Josh McCown in the second quarter of Sunday’s game against the Jets and tossed a 54-yard touchdown pass on just his second throw.

Manziel hooked up with Travis Benjamin down the left sideline to put the Browns ahead 7–0.

It was his first career passing touchdown.

​McCown left the game after diving for the end zone and sustaining a concussion on the previous drive.

Manziel finished his first drive of the season 2 of 2 for 67 yards and a touchdown.
