MONTREAL (AP) — Johnny Manziel was 12 of 20 for 88 yards and a touchdown and the Hamilton Tiger-Cats scored 30 straight points to beat the Montreal Alouettes 30-15 on Saturday in the second and final preseason game for both teams.

The 2012 Heisman Trophy winner at Texas A&M, Manziel is making a comeback in the Canadian Football League after being released by the Cleveland Browns in March 2016.

Manziel replaced starter Bryant Moniz with Hamilton down 14-0 four minutes into the second quarter.

Manziel opened with consecutive completions to running back Alex Green for Hamilton's first first down, and capped the drive with a 3-yard scoring pass to Green. Manziel led three drives for field goals in the second half before giving way to Dane Evans.
