The Monday Night Football battle between the Cleveland Browns and Washington Redskins pales in comparison to the intra-squad battle that will take place between incumbent starting QB Brian Hoyer and rookie QB Johnny Manziel.
Neither has flopped or excelled enough to create a significant gap in the competition, so their performances tonight will matter a lot. Who will come out on top for Week 1?
"Before camp started, I predicted Hoyer would hold off Manziel and start Week 1," wrote Nate Urlich of the Akron Beacon Journal. "I still believe he will as long as he doesn’t choke at the finish line with Johnny Football on his heels."
