Who said no one cares about preseason?

Saturday night’s exhibition between the Cleveland Browns and Detroit Lions drew an NFL Network record 2.2 million viewers and a 1.81 rating. And let’s not kid ourselves – everyone tuned in to see Johnny Manziel.

While it is true the media has hyped Manziel up to no end, apparently the public likes it. 2.2 million viewers for a meaningless game is a very high number.

I can only imagine what the numbers will be if Manziel wins the starting job over Brian Hoyer. One thing is for sure – football is relevant in Cleveland again.
