Monday's NFL preseason game between the Cleveland Browns and Washington Redskins earned a 4.8 overnight rating for ESPN, the cable network announced Tuesday.

The game featured Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel, who threw a touchdown pass and made an obscene gesture toward the Washington sideline. The Redskins won, 24-23.

ESPN said it was the second highest-rated preseason game ever based on overnights.
