Cleveland Browns' QB Johnny Manziel was all smiles Sunday afternoon talking about WR Travis Benjamin's big day.

"You can throw it as a far as you want and you are never really going to out throw him. That is what I have learned from Trav. What an incredible day for him. Offense and special teams, that was a heck of performance,” Manziel said, following the team's 28-14 victory over the Tennessee Titans.
Benjamin, who sprinted his way to 269 all-purpose yards and three touchdowns, had nothing but praise to return for the former Heisman Trophy winner.
“His eyes are always down field. When Johnny is scrambling, he’s always looking to throw first. Once I put my hand up, I saw him call it and I just ran up under it," Benjamin said. "He’s a great guy. He ignores the noise outside, which everyone doesn’t notice. He’s just got to keep playing. Winning this week, we’ve got Oakland on the schedule next week. We’ve just got to come out and do the same thing.”
The discussion about next week against Oakland is now heating up, as the Dawg Pound debates whether Manziel or Josh McCown should start for Cleveland.
