For the Cleveland Browns today against the New York Jets, the quarterbacks situation went from Josh McCown to Johnny Manziel quickly.

1authorrob3 - Josh McCown Exits, Johnny Manziel Enters & Throws TD (Video)Todd Bowles and the New York Jets didn’t quite open up the 2015 NFL season the way they wanted to.

Not only did their first offensive drive go for no points, but Cleveland Browns quarterback Josh McCown drove his team all the way down inside the 15-yard line. Then, though, McCown decided to go airborne on third and goal.

He was hit low by safety Calvin Pryor and high by linebacker Demario Davis. The Jets recovered in the end-zone.

Not only did the Browns turn it over, but McCown was forced to leave the game due to a concussion. Enter Johnny Manziel, who promptly threw his first career touchdown pass as he abused Antomio Cromartie on the outside.

Ryan Fitzpatrick hit Eric Decker on a post after a nicely run two-minute drill to give New York a slight 14-10 lead at halftime.
