Johnny Interceptions: Manziel Picked Off Four Times in First Half of CFL Debut

Johnny Manziel's debut north of the border went south in a hurry. 

Starting for the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League, Manziel's first pass attempt in the CFL was completed for a 5-yard loss. One pass later, Manziel had his first interception in a blowout 50-11 loss against the team that traded him, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. 

That was just the beginning of a long night for Manziel. 

Manziel totaled four interceptions in the first half alone. No other quarterback has thrown four interceptions in a CFL game this season. In the NFL, only one other quarterback has thrown four interceptions in one half in the past 10 seasons. 

Here are all four of Manziel's interceptions from Friday night: 

Montreal pulled Manziel in the fourth quarter. He finished the night completing 11 of 20 passes for 104 yards, no touchdowns and four interceptions. 

Back in 2014, Manziel's NFL debut didn't go so well either. The former Heisman Trophy winner completed 10 passes out of 18 attempts for 80 yards, no toucdowns and two interceptions. Manziel last played in the NFL on Dec. 27, 2015.
