Johnny Manziel Breaks Tackles, Scrambles on Third Down To Complete Unlikely Hail Mary for First Down (GIFs)

Johnny Manziel may be the most controversial quarterback in college football, but he’s also one of the most electrifying.

During the second quarter of the Alabama-Texas A&M game, Johnny Football found himself in a dire situation. Manziel dropped back on third-and-eight, evaded tackles from every which way, and as he continued to scramble into his own territory, he somehow was able to throw a pass off his back foot downfield to Edward Pope for a first down.

It was a dangerous pass to throw with a sea of Crimson Tide defenders closing in on Manziel, but the estimated 44-yard pass became just another highlight-worthy play for the Aggies signal caller.
