Hoyer gets starting nod againCLEVELAND (AP) - Cleveland Browns coach Mike Pettine has chosen Brian Hoyer to start at quarterback ahead of Johnny Manziel in Monday's exhibition game at Washington. Pettine's decision is somewhat surprising since he has stated that the quarterback competition is "open" and Hoyer started the preseason opener last week at Detroit. Manziel was a first-round pick in this year's NFL draft and has been competing with Hoyer for the starting job since training camp opened last month.
