Mr. Football himself, aka Johnny Manziel, managed to steal the spotlight by flipping the bird at the Washington Football Team bench after a play in the third quarter — and it was all caught on camera.

When public relations representative for the Browns, Rob McBurnett, pulled Manziel aside to let him know that it was caught on video, his reaction was less than impressed:
Washington safety Ryan Clark went on ESPN Radio Tuesday morning and revealed that Manziel’s gesture was in response to a comment made by his teammate.
“I can tell you what the statement was that set him off. The statement was, ‘This isn’t college anymore and these people are faster than you are.’ And he didn’t like it. That’s the cleaned up statement, but that was pretty much what it was.”
One thing’s for sure, Johnny Football never fails to keep us entertained.
