Johnny Manziel didn't do much against the Redskins first-team defense, but once Washington's second team went in, Johnny Football took over.

The Browns quarterback threw the first touchdown pass of his career. Johnny Football didn't really have to do any work on the play. Manziel flipped a shovel pass to Dion Lewis, who barged his way 8 yards downfield for a touchdown.

The score cut the Redskins' lead down to 14-10.

Johnny Football's touchdown pass capped a 16-play, 68-yard drive that chewed up 8:15 on the clock. The pass also ended Manziel's night with a line of 7 of 16 for 65 yards and a TD.

Eight plays before his first preseason touchdown pass, Manziel also showed off another preseason first: His first time flipping the bird to the opponent's bench.
