Cleveland vs Washington: Browns Preseason Week 2 Game Preview

The Cleveland Browns quarterback competition between Johnny Manziel and Brian Hoyer is once again the dominant storyline around Cleveland this week.

Monday Night Football's national spotlight puts an even greater focus on head coach Mike Pettine's comments from Friday. 

Much is being made of the coaching staff deciding to give Hoyer the start over Manziel against the Washington Redskins, but Pettine said that Manziel will still get quality playing time with the first team, according to The Chronicle-Telegram's Scott Petrak:

Johnny's going to get reps with the ones.

Just to me, the factor of starting the game I think is a little bit overblown in this situation because we're going to try to balance the reps with the ones, It's a little overrated who trots out there for the first time.

The Browns defense should be put to the test both on the ground and through the air.

Washington quarterback Robert Griffin III is a weapon unto himself and is going to have impact wide receiver targets Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson at his disposal. Alfred Morris is the dynamite running back and will surely give Cleveland's front seven all it can handle.
