The Browns pulled Brian Hoyer from Sunday’s loss to the Bills and gave extended playing time to Johnny Manziel for the first time this regular season.

Manziel led the team to a touchdown and coach Mike Pettine was left mulling a lasting change as his 7-5 team tries to hold onto their playoff hopes. Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer will join Mike Florio on Monday’s edition of PFT Live to discuss what the Browns will wind up doing with their two quarterbacks.

The Saints avoided the Browns’ fate on Sunday by winning for the first time in four games and keeping pace with the Falcons in the NFC South. The day started with a slew of reports regarding issues with defensive coordinator Rob Ryan, interest in running back Ray Rice and potentially drafting an heir to Drew Brees, so we’ll discuss it all with Jeff Duncan of the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

The Jets have decided to go back to quarterback Geno Smith after Monday night’s 38-3 thrashing at the hands of the Bills in a move that some have reported is the opposite of what head coach Rex Ryan wanted to do at the position.

One of those reports came from Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News and he’ll join Mike Florio on Wednesday’s edition of PFT Live to discuss the latest episode in the never-ending soap opera that is the Jets. They’ll discuss the reasons for going back to Smith, the machinations that went on in coming to that decision and what it all means for the futures of Ryan, General Manager John Idzik and Smith with the franchise.

We usually do the weekly picks on Thursday, but Thanksgiving is a day for stuffing turkeys and watching football so Florio and MDS will discuss this week’s slate of games during Wednesday’s program.
