Cleveland Browns rookie Johnny Manziel should finally see some extended playing time. Granted, it’s because today’s Browns game is against one of the worst teams in the NFL. The Browns may be outperforming this season, but Manziel is the still main reason to watch Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs Cleveland Browns online free live streaming today if you can’t watch the game live on Fox.
Last Sunday Browns starting QB Brian Hoyer completed 19 of 28 passes for 275 yards and no interceptions in Cleveland’s 23-13 win over the Raiders. In doing so, the Browns matched their entire win total from the 2013-14 season. But Browns head coach Mike Pettine said this week that Manziel seemed frustrated at not playing and would slip into the rotation if the Browns could afford it.
Today the Browns can afford it. Although tight end Jordan Cameron will miss today’s Buccaneers / Browns game with a concussion, the lack of a big receiving target shouldn’t matter as we watch Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs Cleveland Browns online free live. Tampa Bay is dead last in points allowed (31.9), total yards allowed (409.9) and second to last in passing yards allowed (286).
That defense has been one of the Bucs’ biggest downfalls. Last Sunday against the Vikings, Buccaneers QB Mike Glennon threw a 7-yard TD to Austin Seferian-Jenkins to give Tampa Bay a three-point lead with 2:02 remaining. But Tampa Bay’s defense let struggling rookie Teddy Bridgewater assemble a 61-yard scoring drive to send the game to overtime. Tampa Bay ended up losing to the Vikings 13-10.
If the Vikings and Bridgewater could hang tight with the Bucs, the 4-3 Browns should be able to jump out to an early lead. In turn, that should create space for Manziel to finally see meaningful playing time.
