Bengals taunt Johnny Manziel

Cleveland Browns rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel was taunted by the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday during a blowout win.

Manziel got taunted by Bengals defensive lineman Wallace Gilberry with Manziel's signature money sign after a sack.

Manziel said he didn't notice the taunting.

"He kind of brought that on himself," Gilberry said. "He's a great athlete, a good quarterback, but today was more about us than him."

Bengals linebacker Rey Maualuga also did the gesture after batting down a pass. That drew a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.

Manziel completed 10 of 18 passes for just 80 yards and two interceptions in the 30-0 loss.

"It was tough," Manziel said. "When you get beat, you get beat and you take it like a man. I felt like it was a fail on my part. "
