    I'm going to assume you' know the rules of football. If not, quickly have a look at to get some of the basic terms down.

    You can knock this one out and the Tim Tebow one out easily with two controllers. Pick the Jets on your main account as the home team and some scrub team like the Jaguars with the second controller as the away team. Set quarters to 1 min, and play clock to off once you have selected the teams.

    Then start the game and only choose run plays. Only run a play when the clock gets stopped, otherwise just stand there and don't hike the ball. Make sure the game stays tied; just don't score.

    Once you get to overtime, if the Jaguars win the toss, have them choose to kick. If the Jets win, have them receive. THIS IS KEY for the Tebowing achievement to work. Just kneel it in the end zone (don't do anything as long as your return man is in the end zone he will eventually kneel it) then immediately go into Coaching Options>Depth Chart from the pause menu as the Jets and then replace Mark Sanchez on top of the QB depth chart with Tim Tebow if you haven't already.

    Go back into the game, choose the Jaguars defense in FG Block from Special Teams formation and choose Hail Mary for the Jets. Snap the ball with Tebow on the Jets and quickly throw to a receiver and run it in for the score. BLOOP! Tebowing pops first, then The Penitent Man Shall Pass if that was the only pass you completed all game.

    jargonJust thought I'd add some of my trials:
    1) Incomplete pass
    2) Incomplete pass
    3) Brian McKnight fumbled the ball on the return (maybe a touchback should be recommended)
    4) Forgot to switch to Tebow
    5) Incomplete pass
    6) Worked like a charm. 80 yard TD from Tebow to Kerley for the achievements!

    This is easily done by setting the quarters to 1 min and picking a team with a decent running back. I used the Texans vs. Colts.
