    That does not sound right. "A week and a half later"? Sounds like Glyphosate.
    Cut your loses and sub out a licensed applicator.

    Sounds like the rate was too high meaning you sprayed more that needed on the lawn.

    My first guess is too high of a Momentum rate. Most herbicides have a built in safety factors up to 5X or more. Do you know how much you used over what area? You should have those records. IF it was Momentum the lawn will most likely come back. My other guess would be Roundup contamination. How you would burn several lawns with Roundup, I have no idea. I have used contaminated sprayers and have had no effect on lawns. The rate of Roundup becomes to small to do anything.
