Johnny Manziel made his first NFL start on Sunday, and it didn’t go well.

In fact, the best part of Johnny Football’s day was before the game when LeBron James sent his best wishes.

Then came kickoff and the Bengals crushed the Browns and Manziel 30-0.

Former Chief Wallace Gilberry sacked Manziel, then did his signature celebration, which drew a flag (Vine from InsideBamaRecruiting):

After that things didn’t get better for Manziel, which people took note of on Twitter. Manziel was 10 of 18 for 88 yards with two interceptions. That was a 27.3 rating. He also rushed five times for 13 yards.
