grammarly suggests that I should use lead instead of led


why does grammarly suggests I to use lead instead of led.

See example:

Your passage is written in the past tense.  Led is the past tense of lead


You need a couple other corrections.  The preposition in should be change to on.  You need an article (the) before competitive.  There should be a period at the end.
