Fork Over Rake

13 Sep 2019

Facing 4th-and-1 from the two yard line, trailing by six, Cam Newton shifted out wide and Christian McCaffrey took the direct snap, faked the reverse and dove for the endzone pylon. He didn't make it, knocked out of bounds by Vernon Hargreaves short of the touchdown and--even more disheartening for Panther fans--short of the first down, giving Bruce Arians his first win with the Tampa Bucs, 20-14 over Carolina.

The goal line stand by the Bucs secured the GridCard win for October Cherokee (41) who took down the Hamlin-Hopper in just her sixth week of GridPlay. Zeke (39), KMac (38), and Kevin K (38) put up big scores but lost to October's 41 ounce TallBoy which also helped her earn the King Kong (67) for winning the week.

Just two other Gridders posted Qualifying Scores: Dano (32) and TheDust (32). All of the above earned WPNs for defeating the ProGrid Tour where nobody managed a QS. Tuenesto (27) earned a much-needed PGT win but must fork over the Rake.
