The Cleveland Browns were defeated by the Seattle Seahawks by a final score of 30-13 this afternoon.

The game started on a positive note as the Browns, led by Johnny Manziel, went down the field for an 80-yard touchdown drive to start the game. Manziel looked cool, calm and collected on the drive deciding not to run for a score but throw a bullet to tight end Gary Barnidge for a touchdown. However, after this first drive it was basically like watching every other Browns game.

Keep in mind that the Seahawks have won their six of their previous seven games and are looking like Super Bowl contenders once again. After all, they are the two-time defending NFC Champions.

Johnny Manziel threw for 161 yards, the lowest among Browns quarterbacks this season and also added a touchdown as well as a late-game interception. The interception was with the game out of reach and was nothing more than Manziel trying to make a play with nothing to lose. The young quarterback didn’t overly impress anyone with his performance today, however he also didn’t play particularly bad.
