The first night of Fan Controlled Football didn’t have to wait long for a Johnny Manziel highlight.

The first play of the game Saturday saw the Heisman winner from Texas A&M and first-round pick of the Cleveland Browns almost go the length of the 50-yard field.

Manziel threw a TD pass on the Zappers’ first drive and ran one in on the second against the Beasts.

The league incorporates fans into play-calling. It is highly interactive and there was a steady flow of comments on the Twitch video. The game begins slightly different than the NFL or either incarnation of the XFL. How about Rock, Paper, Scissors for the coin toss?

And your halftime “snack” was far from typical.

The FCF league is four weeks of a regular season, one week of a playoff and then a championship game.
