Gave him the reigns

FOUND ON NETFLIX: Gave him the reigns...

The program that did the subtitles messed up. He gave him the reins, as with a horse. Reigns is a verb, not a noun.

FROM ANOTHER ARTICLE: It’s $36,620 base price is competitive for an EV but significantly more than the prices of other compact cars.
    It's $36,620 base price isn't possessive, so you don't need the apostrophe. Its works here.

    Role him out

    FOUND ONLINE: By 2013 Tannehill was still not allowed to audible and Sherman was still trying to keep him in the pocket rather than use his athleticism and role him out.

    The writer meant roll him out, not role him out. I'd also put a comma after audible.


    ALSO FOUND ONLINE: Where did you spend you money last month?

    Obviously, the writer mean YOUR money.
