The Browns offense looked terrible but Johnny Manziel gave the team a spark. Whether he or Brian Hoyer are starting next week will be interesting. It is unlikely that Mike Pettine will feel comfortable making that decision before looking at the film but he could have already decided. The Browns are still in the playoff race but also needs to start looking at the future. The defense played well but were hurt very badly by the lack of offense from the Browns.
