Sep 13, 2015 11:25 PM

Josh McCown suffered a concussion late in the first quarter of the Cleveland Browns' loss to the New York Jets, leaving Johnny Manziel to finish the game.

Manziel committed three turnovers in the second half. Manziel finished the game going 13-for-24 for 182 yards, one touchdown and one interception.

"I think that's a tough spot given our practice rules and how little work that No. 2s actually get (in practice)," Mike Pettine said. "I thought he did some good things."

Jones: Didn't Notice 49ers Fan Base At Stadium

Sep 8, 2014 1:53 AM

A significant percentage of the 91,174 fans who filled AT&T Stadium on Sunday afternoon wore red and cheered for the 49ers, but Cowboys owner and GM Jerry Jones claimed not to notice the home-field disadvantage.

"Listen, I'm interested in the football game and what went on with the game," Jones said after the Cowboys' 28-17 loss to the 49ers. "It's not good when you don't win -- from any perspective, marketing or otherwise. I had my eye on those turnovers and interest on those turnovers. I'm not even sure I know what you are talking about, to tell you the truth. OK?"
