Johnny Manziel better, but Alouettes stumble at end

Johnny Manziel eliminated the interceptions but couldn't generate enough offense for the Montreal Alouettes in a 24-17 loss to the Ottawa Redblacks on Saturday night. After throwing four first-half interceptions last week in his Montreal debut, Manziel was 16 of 26 for 168 yards without an interception. Ottawa broke a tie with 15 seconds left on William Powell's 10-yard touchdown run.
