BRIDGEVIEW, Ill. Kevin King Packers Jersey . -- Being down a man while also missing two stars didnt seem to faze Toronto FC on Wednesday. Toronto (6-4-3, 21 points) ran its unbeaten streak to six as it resisted late Chicago pressure to earn a 1-1 tie at soggy Toyota Park. Midfielder Jackson scored Torontos lone goal in the 42nd minute, heading a feed from forward Jermain Defoe past Fire goalkeeper Sean Johnson. "Any point on the road is a good point, especially when youre down to 10 men," said Toronto coach Ryan Nelsen, whose team remains unbeaten (3-0-3) in league play since a May 3 loss to New England. "They (the Fire) did very well in the second half and pushed us hard. We had to defend and we defended very well." Forward Luke Moore was issued a red card and ejected in the 29th minute after a mid-air collision with Fire midfielder Chris Ritter and Toronto played the final hour with 10 men. Toronto FC was also outshot 20-7 and trailed in possession by a lopsided 62-38 per cent. Yet Chicago mustered only one score - Harry Shipps sixth goal of the season in the 56th minute. "We did enough to win the game, when its 10 men against 11 we should win the game," said Fire coach Frank Yallop, whose team is winless in five games. "We had our chances, its frustrating. We had them. Thats our problem right now, we cant seem to win a game." Numerous other Chicago shots went wide, fell short or were stopped by Toronto goalkeeper Joe Bendik, who had five saves. In the 73rd minute an apparent go-ahead goal by Fire defender Bakary Soumare was waved off on an offside call. Toronto was playing its second game in five days while Chicago was among the last Major League Soccer teams to restart the season after a lengthy World Cup break. "This point is very valuable," Nelsen said. "It proves that away from home weve been down to 10 men twice and weve managed to get something out of the game and that was extremely important." Moores ejection came after a midfield battle for possession with Ritter. Moore appeared to elbow Ritter in the right temple. Ritter temporarily left the game but was back within three minutes with his his head bandaged. The ejection includes an automatic suspension for Saturdays home game with D.C. United. Toronto was missing goalkeeper Julio Cesar, who helped carry host Brazil into the World Cups final eight, as well as recent midfielder acquisition Michael Bradley, expected back soon from a U.S. team stint.

You can watch the game live on TSN and TSN GO at 7pm et/4pm pt. Manziel, so full of swagger and cool, understands his limitations. Hes only a rookie. And as the celebrity quarterback prepares for Clevelands exhibition tonight in Washington, a game that could decide whether he or Hoyer starts the season opener at Pittsburgh on Sept. 7, Manziel acknowledged hes still got a lot to learn. "I dont think Im ready for Pittsburgh right now," he said. Manziel, though, was quick to point out that hes made progress during training camp, and he expects to get better running Clevelands offence. "Ive only played one game, but the more and more you see it, the more you get familiar with it, the better it will be," Manziel said after practice Saturday. Hoyer, who entered camp as the No. 1 QB and has done nothing to lose his starting job, was unaware that hes not part of the ratings campaign. "I dont watch ESPN," he said. "It doesnt matter, because what matters is what coach (Mike) Pettine thinks and what (offensive co-ordinator) Kyle (Shanahan) thinks. The media can make any story they want. I avoid all of that. When it comes down to it, theyre not the ones making the decisions." The Hoyer-Manziel competition is nearing its conclusion, and its still not clear if Pettine and his staff are leaning in one direction.Pettine is determined to get his two QBs an even amount of snaps against the Redskins. Pettine said hell reach out to Washington coach Jay Gruden to find out his plans to use his starters so he can ensure that Hoyer and Manziel face similar competition. "If we have to make some adjustments to get the matchups we want then we will," Pettine said. Pettine plans to meet with his staff and pick a starter Tuesday. While most of the country is eager to see what Manziel will do on the Monday night stage, the Heisman Trophy winner is staying calm and focused. "I dont think theres any pressure for me,&quoot; he said. Kevin King Youth Jersey. "Im still learning. Im still growing. This is my second game. My expectations arent through the roof. Its go out and compete extremely hard, be a leader for those guys, whatever group Im with, and well see what happens." After his off-field behaviour in the off-season was widely scrutinized, Manziel is finding his habits are always being watched. He conceded to being late for a meeting on Monday morning after he misread a change in the teams schedule. Manziel said he and Pettine talked and have "moved on." "It was an honest mistake and something I need to learn from and make sure it doesnt happen again," Manziel said. As for Hoyer, he hasnt changed his belief that the Browns are his team. While dealing with the hysteria caused by Manziel, he has maintained hes only trying to become the best quarterback possible. There may be signs that Manziel is Clevelands quarterback of the future, but Hoyer is only concerned with the here and now. Hes aware that Pettine said the Week 1 starter should not think its a permanent gig. "Its a situation I dealt with last year when I came in and we kind of said it was a week to week thing," he said. Hoyer also heard the trade speculation that began when the Browns signed veteran quarterback Rex Grossman earlier this week. Its not worth worrying about. "I guess people were trying to connect the dots and thats your job to do that," he said. "For me, Im not concerned about anything like that. Im looking forward to being the starting quarterback here.

WR Josh Gordon practiced after missing time with an abdominal injury, but its not certain if hell face the Redskins.
