If you play Tackle Alley, you should have no problem getting this.

Before selecting Tackle Alley from the menu and starting the game, you may want to switch the controls to the alternate setup (where A is juke and B is spin). Many other gamers have reported success with this setup.

As you progress through the Waves (there are 100 total), the number of defenders start at 3 and go to an insane 11. The more defenders, the easier it should be to reach a x5 combo.

Start with a spin or juke move on the first defender, you now will have a yellow combo bar in the upper lefthand corner of the screen. The yellow bar drains until you perform another spin, juke, or some sort of evasion. With each move, the bar restarts its countdown and you will be able to see the multiplier next to it.

I am not sure if you have to score a touchdown while you have the "x5 combo" active to pop the achievement or not. However, just keep trying to link your moves together and it will work for you.
