For fans of rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel, the Cleveland Browns' 26-10 loss to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday had a silver lining: After a lackluster performance from Browns' starting quarterback Brian Hoyer, Johnny Football took over the offense in the fourth quarter.

Manziel's first drive showed why the the former Texas A&M signal caller drew a first-round selection in the 2014 NFL Draft. Manziel marched the Browns' offense 80 yards down the field, and capped off the drive with a touchdown scramble.

Manziel, of course, performed his money sign celebration.

Manziel's breakout performance creates a quarterback controversy in Cleveland. The Browns take on the Colts at home next week, and right now it's unclear whether Hoyer or Manziel will start the game.

"It's not like we're just going to go back to Brian," Browns coach Mike Pettine said after the game, via NFL.com. "This has been a cumulative thing where discussions about a change at quarterback have been more and more lively. We'll evaluate both quarterbacks and have a decision soon."
