Johnny Manziel showed off some of his fancy footwork, and the Cleveland rookie looked sharp with his arm too in his preseason debut, although the Browns lost to Detroit 13-12 on Saturday.

Although Manziel couldn't take his team to the end zone, he did go 7 of 11 for 63 yards, completing one more pass than starting quarterback Brian Hoyer. Manziel also ran for 27 yards on six carries, including a 16-yard scramble in the third quarter.

The former Heisman Trophy winner took the field with 7:32 left in the first half, immediately completing a 6-yard pass to Anthony Armstrong.

"It was a good start," he said. "You have to start somewhere and set a foundation. I got my feet wet, got my first preseason game under my belt."

  • Rashad Jennings had a 73-yard touchdown run, and Curtis Painter's scoring pass with 2:50 left gave the New York Giants a 20-16 win over Pittsburgh.

  • Carson Palmer was 5 for 5 for 84 yards and a touchdown in his lone series, and Arizona rout Houston 32-0, a dismal debut for Bill O'Brien as Texans coach.

  • Jackie Battle scored on a 7-yard touchdown run with 5:02 left, and Tennessee rallied to beat Green Bay 20-16.

    Vikings: Police are looking for a gunman who shot nine people, including defensive tackle Linval Joseph, at a Minneapolis nightclub early Saturday. Police said it was gang-related. Two victims with serious injuries were in stable condition and expected to survive. Joseph went to the club after the Vikings' 10-6 win over the Raiders on Friday. In a statement, the team said Joseph as an "innocent bystander" and was hit in the calf by a bullet. The injury was minor, and Joseph was released from the hospital.
