Manziel turns in solid half; Bengals lead 14-10

Johnny Manziel


Johnny Football had a pretty nice half throwing the football in an entertaining Thursday Night Football game.

The Bengals lead the Browns at halftime, 14-10, but the Browns have some momentum after Johnny Manziel led a touchdown drive to end the first half.

That 92-yard scoring drive was capped by a 12-yard touchdown pass from Manziel to Duke Johnson.

Manziel went 11-of-18 for 128 yards. His first-half quarterback rating was 101.2.

Both Bengals touchdowns have come on Andy Dalton passes to Tyler Eifert, who now has eight touchdown receptions on the season. Dalton is 9-of-13 for 77 yards.

The Browns had another impressive 71-yard drive earlier in the half but stalled in the red zone and settled for a field goal.

Browns left guard Joel Bitonio walked to the locker room, escorted by trainers, with 19 seconds left in the first half. The Browns announced Bitonio has an ankle injury but is probable to return.
