Manziel watches as Masoli stars for Tiger-Cats
HAMILTON, Ontario (AP) — Johnny Manziel watched from the sideline again as Jeremiah Masoli starred in the Hamilton Tiger-Cats’ 31-17 victory over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on Friday night.
Masoli completed 31 of 41 passes for 369 yards and a touchdown to help the Tiger-Cats improve to 2-1. The former Ole Miss quarterback has passed for more than 300 yards in eight consecutive games.
Manziel is making a comeback with the Canadian Football League team after being released by the Cleveland Browns in March 2016. The 2012 Heisman Trophy winner at Texas A&M was 21 of 32 for 168 yards and a touchdown in two exhibition games.
