Bottom Line

Sunday’s matchup between the Titans and the Browns will be very interesting to say the least. Manziel doesn’t look like he gets overwhelmed by blitzes, he needs only to play within himself more. Mariota looked ready to take the NFL by storm the same way Robert Griffin III did as a rookie on Sunday.

But we don’t know what it’s going to be like for Mariota once he faces a solid defense like the Browns have. And even though Manziel is in his second year, he did take many snaps last year so he has no jump to year two in him. I wonder if Manziel learned anything about LeBeau’s defense in meetings last year and how much playing the Jets defense will help him.

He’s also getting starters reps this week.

I’m calling it pick ’em

Tune in on Sunday!
