Complete all Madden Moments until you unlock the Super Bowl Sunday Madden Moment. Make sure to save frequently on the way to unlocking the Super Bowl Sunday one, so you don't accidentally lose your progress.

After many failed onside kick attempts, the easiest way I found to beat this challenge is to take advantage of a design flaw:

1. Score a TD on the fourth down.
2. Go for two to lock in the win, just in case you can pull off the remaining steps. If you fail the conversion, start over to save yourself some headache.
3. Kick the ball off normally or squib kick it. Oddly enough, I got the achievement using a squib kick.
4. Call a timeout ASAP after 1st and 2nd down ensuring they don't gain 5 yards or more. On 3rd down, they will almost always kneel the ball because there isn't enough time to get the ball back.
5. This is the key. After the 3rd down play/kneel, get back to the playcalling menu and call any defense ASAP. Run into an offensive player as soon as the game will allow. After the encroachment penalty is called, the play clock will reset to 25 instead of 40. This will allow enough time for the Saints to punt the ball.
6. Fair catch the ball and give your best Hail Mary or deep play a shot. If you score a TD, kick the PAT and achievement unlocked.

I got this on my first attempt with this method. I tried doing this after the failed onside kick, but they would just end up making 50+ yard field goals instead of punting.

Edit: Changed "game clock" to say "play clock" as intended.
