Johnny Manziel, meet Michael Sam. Michael Sam, meet Johnny Manziel.

The two most hyped rookies of 2014 finally met on the field on Saturday and surprisingly, if you're reading this, it means the Internet didn't explode.

Sam recorded a half a sack in 2013 when Missouri beat Texas A&M 28-21. Of course, Sam was just college student Michael Sam then and hadn't gained the publicity that comes along with being the first openly gay player in the NFL.

Here's the sack. You can see Sam's 'money fingers' at the top of the page.
