With the final CFL preseason game taking place on Saturday, Hamilton Tiger-Cats starter Jeremiah Masoli sat out, awaiting the start of the regular season.

That meant it was the Johnny Manziel show, and he didn’t disappoint in the first half of action, making some nice plays and throwing his first touchdown pass.

As you can see in the video below, Manziel’s bullet pass cut Montreal’s lead from 14-0 to 14-7 just before halftime:


Manziel has some work left to do if he wants to take over the starting job, but he’s certainly drawing a lot of eyes to the CFL this summer.

He still has a second half to go, so we’ll see if he puts together any more impressive highlights.
