Pinch-Hit Bad Beat

18 Aug 2018

The Buffalo Bills beat the Browns 19-17 on Thursday but lost their starting quarterback AJ McCarron in the process. Not a good night for the Browns' QBs either. Baker Mayfield went 7-13 for 75 yards and Tyrod Taylor completed just four passes for 22 yards against his old team. Josh Allen and Nathan Peterman each threw a TD pass for Buffalo who won outright and sewed up the GridCard win for Kevin K (42) who moved into a tie with Heart of a Hooligan for Total GC Wins (8) and edged closer to the top of the Leaderboard in both Total Points and WWP. 

When the Bills vs Browns toppled Over 35, ranvilld12 (37) went under--just missing out on back-to-back Hamlin Hoppers--but still earning a win against the ProGrid Tour which MW (34) took down. She also leveled up another King Kong, accumulating a monster 80 total points for the week.

The Second Game was really decided on Sunday night when Ace (37) suffered through one of the year's worst bad beats--a two out, bottom of he ninth, pinch-hit grand slam by Davis Bote which turned a 3-0 lead for Max Scherzer's Nationals into a 4-3 win for the Cubs. A total of 116 GridCard points changed hands after the Cubs were down to their last strike and trailed by three. 

Rico (31) posted the only other Qualifying Score as the Second Game of the GridCard played tough.
