Manziel's win complicating Browns quarterback situation

BEREA, Ohio (AP) Browns coach Mike Pettine says quarterback Johnny Manziel's winning performance on Sunday will make it tougher to decide who will start when Josh McCown returns from a concussion.

Manziel threw two long touchdown passes in a 28-14 win over Tennessee. The second-year QB has made major progress this season, and Pettine has been pleased with his development aside from four fumbles in the past two games.

Pettine said McCown remains in the NFL's program on head injuries after sustaining a concussion on the opening drive of the season opener against the Jets. Pettine said the Browns coaching staff will meet Monday night and have a ''what if'' discussion about the quarterback situation. He said the bottom line will be which player gives the Browns the best chance to win.

Cleveland will host the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.
