    You should get this while going for at least the DeAngelo Hall and David Bowens awards. I also went for the Leon Washington and DeSean Jackson awards because 5 minute quarters gave me enough time and it's essentially the same setup.

    Edit a team's starting cornerbacks (2 or 3) and safeties (1 of each) to 99 stats: speed, acceleration, awareness, catching, play recognition, zone coverage, man coverage.

    Create a team, and under Edit Team Data change the team type to fantasy draft. Sort players by speed (lowest at top) and fill out each position. When you have the minimum for each position, fill the rest of team with kickers.

    Go to Player Skill sliders and change Reaction Time and Interceptions to 100. Change Pass Rushing to 0, because this will give the opposing QB all the time he needs to throw an interception. Go into CPU Skill and change Pass Blocking to 100, QB accuracy to 33 and WR catching to 0.

    Give the ball to the CPU somewhere between your 10 and 15 yard lines. The easiest way I found to do this was to get the ball near my 20 and kick a field goal. When a field goal is missed and not returned it is given to the other team at the spot of the kick, calling a field goal on your 20 yard line will place the other team at your 13. Call a nickel defense and wait for an interception in the end zone, the speed difference makes it easy enough to return it for a TD.

    M0NKEY R4NGERThis is the solution that helped me. Well not the whole solution but just one part. I did it with 2 controllers and changed all the stats and such in my favor for both teams as most guides recommend, the one thing that helped me the most was using a Nickle defense play. Once I started using Nickle defense play as it states in this guide, it only took me 3 tries to get the achievement. First try my FS caught the interception but was tackled immediately as the WR was directly behind im, second attempt he batted the ball away, and final and third attempt he intercepted and was able to find a hole to run it all the way!! clap

    If anyone out there is still having trouble with this achievement here is a video which helps make this very simple and easy. It uses the two controller method. Can be done in the very first game you try. Good luck!

    You can boost this with another person in an online friends game or MUT game. Get the ball about 20 yards from the end zone, and pick the Hail Mary Trips play under the Hail Mary formation. Have the player controlling the defense pick Cover 2 under the Nickel defensive package. Offense should throw to the single receiver on the left side, bullet pass as he is crossing the goal line. Let the CPU control the corner backs and safeties as they are much better at intercepting, unless you feel comfortable intercepting. You should have a fairly clear road up that side to return the INT for a TD with the help of the offense pulling their players away. Rinse and repeat for the other person.

    jargonFor some reason, it worked better for me when I put my controller (the one on defense) to rookie and his to all madden.
