    For this achievement you need to kick a 60+ yards field goal.

    1. Change the skill sliders for FG Kicking and FG Accuracy to 100 in the My Madden / Options Screen.

    2. Change the rating from the kicker of the team you are playing with.

    3. Setup a game with whatever length you see fit.

    4. While on offense make your way somewhat to the 43 yards line.

    5. Select Field Goal attempt and make sure you hit above 95% power and make sure the accuracy is good.

    If it does not work the first time, try again. I did it in two attempts..

    I used Mason Crosby ( Green Bay ) with adjusted sliders. Make sure you're no closer than the 43 yard line. Line up the kick and hit it with at least 92% power. I made a 67 (100%), 63(95%) and 60(92%) yard field goal with only 3 MPH winds helping. The ach pops right away.

    I used Stephen Gostkowski on the New England Patriots to get my achievement but as long as you have the field goal user sliders all the way up and you edit the kicker you are using all the way up on kick accuracy and kick power you can get this achievement with any kicker. I don't know if it helped but I played in a dome stadium (Detroit Lions stadium) with no wind. It doesn't matter what team you play and what team you are playing. You do need to be at at least the 43 yard line to kick the field goal as that would be a 60 yard one. I would highly recommend going out of bounds at the 43 yard line because I think the difference is big and it will be easiest from there. Also I found it easier to kick from the left side of the field and to do that go out of bounds to the left side. If you go out of bounds on the right side you will be kicking on the right side. It took me a while but after slightly moving the arrow down and to the right a little (kicking from the left side) I got the field goal.

    With1nTheRuinsTried and failed multiple times using the developer team in an open air stadium with sliders set all the way to my favor. First try using the raiders in the Texans closed stadium from the left side of the field against the broncos, sliders set in my favor, kicked a 63 yarder straight down the middle. +1 from me great solution bro
