"We're all behind Jeremiah, starting tomorrow," Manziel said Friday, a day before Hamilton's regular-season opener against the Calgary Stampeders. "More than anything, I want a win for this team. It's more than me. It's more than just one individual. It's a team effort and it takes everybody we have on this roster to go out and win games."
MONTREAL (AP) — Johnny Manziel was 12 of 20 for 88 yards and a touchdown and the Hamilton Tiger-Cats scored 30 straight points to beat the Montreal Alouettes 30-15 on Saturday in the final preseason game for both teams.
