The first NFL start in the career of Johnny Manziel will highlight what should be an intersting match-p of two AFC North teams on Sunday.
The Bengals (8-4-1) will be looking to get back in the win column following a loss last weekend to the Steelers. The Browns (7-6) have played themselves out of the playoff picture with poor offensive efforts over the last month which has led to the benching of Brian Hoyer and the turn to Manziel.
Coverage of the game between these two will air on FOX beginning at 1:00 pm ET from FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland, OH. Yes, you read that right. FOX again has the rights to a match-up of two AFC teams. This game will be shown across 46% of the country as FOX is banking on Manziel’s first start being bigger then Aaron Rodgers game against the Bills.
The Odds: The Browns are a 1 point favorite against the Bengals in this one after opening as a 2 point underdog. The over/under for this game is 44 total points.
Surely this one will garner a lot of attention but will it be because of the Browns or the Bengals?
