GRIDCARD Week 36 Recap
Game 72: Taxing Return
The Chargers were at the Kansas City 3-yard line, poised to take a 24-17 lead over the Chiefs when Jaylen Watson stepped in front of WR Gerald Everett, picked off the pass from Justin Herbert, and returned the INT 99 yards for a touchdown, a fourteen point turnaround that Kansas City made stand up 27-24. The battle of AFC West QBs lived up to the billing. Mahomes finished 24-25 for 235 yards and two touchdowns while Herbert went 33-48 with 3 TDs–but one game-changing interception.

Game 71: Assistant Principal
After going 24-0 in his first two dozen games against former assistant coaches, Nick Saban had gone 1-2, including a loss in last year’s championship games to Georgia’s Kirby Smart. On Saturday, Steve Sarkisian had Texas poised to hang another defeat in Saban’s loss column after Bert Auburn gave the Longhorns the lead over Alabama with a late field goal. But that’s when Heisman award winner, Bryce Young, went to work, engineering a 9-play 61 yard drive which include a 20-yard scramble after ducking what most likely would have been a game-ending sack near midfield. With 10 seconds left, kicker Will Reichard was good from 33-yards out, and the Crimson Tide escaped in Austin 20-19.
