It's a great big old mystery. Granted, Johnny Manziel is out for the rest the season with a concussion. Though, if these reports stack up and the Cleveland kid fresh out of rehab (again) was spotted in Vegas the night before his team's big game, well there's no way to frame that favorably. Dick move all around man.

On the one side we've Johnny Hornaceck, a writer from USA Today, and some sort of Tina Turner impersonator, and a cocktail waitress that all claim they saw Manziel at Planet Hollywood in Vegas. Hmm.

On the competing side, we've a potentially recycled picture of Manziel and his dog back at his home in Ohio.

We're eager to see how this one plays out. Either way, not how you want to start up a Sunday--as the Browns or Manziel.

Yesterday, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office granted the Seattle Seahawks running back the trademark to his phrase, "I'm just here so I won't get fined".

Lynch filed for the trademark less than 3 weeks after he used it to answer more than 20 questions at Super Bowl XLIX's media day.

The New England Patriots played all day as if they were wearing ankle weights against the New York Jets, but still managed to push the game past regulation into overtime with a late and shining moment of clutch city from Tom Brady. Let's just say things went downhill fast soon as OT started.

In an act of madness the Patriots chose to kickoff, after winning the coin flip for overtime.

Whoops?

Unsurprisingly it took the Jets a mere five plays to drive down the field for a six-yard TD pass from Ryan Fitzpatrick to Eric Decker for the win.

Jean Francois showed off these cleats, which depict Darth Vader and Kylo Ren to the eager eyes of the internet today. Francois plans on hitting the gridiron tonight against the Eagles, sporting these flashy new cleats. Let's just say the force is strong with this one. Lightsabers not yet NFL approved though.

So, it turns out Ryan Fitzpatrick has a laugh on par with the Pillsbury Doughboy. The laugh itself is more of a shock than Nick Mangold's photobomb.

The greatest highlight from today's NFL Sunday games was William Gay's "excessive celebration" against the Bengals. A flag was tossed and things took a turn for the amazing. Can you get double flagged for celebrating too hard?

You may remember his teammate Antonio Brown captured our hearts last week when he went full Super Mario Bros during his celebration:



Great work out there, team.
