    I have discovered a method that pretty much guarantees you a win, if you have a decent team at least. I don't know if this method will get you banned or not because I haven't played through a season yet.

    What you have to do is create a lineup where all of your starters are a very low OVR. Then put your best players as their backups. For example, I had the punter be my quarterback then had 95 Peyton Manning as his backup. Because the matchmaking works by OVR, this will match you up with very low teams. Once you find a game, wait until after the kickoff, pause the game, go to your Depth Chart and press Y. This will make your roster play your best players. Now you will easily bulldoze these teams. I had to bump my OVR to 55 because I wouldn't find anyone at 47.

    So far I have played three games doing this and each team didn't have a player rated higher than 65. I will update this if I run into any problems and/or after my SB win.

    UPDATE: The first season I did this method, I got disconnected in the last game before the Super Bowl, so I had to play a whole new season.

    In the second season I noticed I started to play better teams, even though I still won, these teams were around 80 OVR. To combat the game noticing this I would change a player in my lineup and exit the whole game itself. The next game always gave me the low OVR teams again. I had to do it after every 3 games, it's completely up to you how often you do this.

    This method did not get me banned.

    The achievement will pop right after you win the Conference Championship game.

    SteaksaucepieI have an 85 overall team, and lower it to a 60 overall before I search for a game. And I've been matched against extremely difficult opponents with players like Bo Jackson, deion sanders, etc. And I'm only rookie 2nd String. I'm in my divisional playoff game, and I'm scared to play again because of how close the games have been. What am I doing wrong?

    zoilus68I'm about to give this a go because I keep running into teams loaded with Elite Legends or 99 players (mine's an 82 overall). Went 5-2 last year then got abused in the playoffs (I've been playing Madden for years--not the best but I'm certainly not bad). I'm 4-3 this year, still running into either people who have no idea what they're doing or MUT masters who are seal clubbing for yuks.

    More after trials. I shall return.

    This totally still works as described above. Made it to the first super bowl I went for. Thumbs up!

    5 0 0 just have to play. I never tried any solution regarding modifying my lineup, and to the best of my knowledge boosting isn't guaranteed (though it's easier in the playoffs). That said, I do have a couple of tips based on what I noticed when I was working my way to this achievement.

    1. It will probably pay to play through solo challenges for a good while until you can comfortably do some of the All-Pro level games that come at the end of the Regular Season and Road to the Playoffs playlists. You get a lot of experience, coin, and players that will help make this journey easier...mostly because...
    2. ...your best shot for this is going to be while you are in the Rookie II or (maybe) Rookie I divisions. On top of making the playoffs, you need to have either a 2 or 3 game winning streak (depending on whether you got a first round bye, which you should also shoot for), and the games are going to get tough in the playoffs even at those low levels. I did notice that when I was playing with a 83-85 OVR lineup, Rookie II matches were fairly easy.
    3. It obviously depends on your play-style, but a solid defensive line was one of my biggest keys to victory. I've heard people like controlling the MLB on defense, and that's fine, but it seems like the putting pressure on the QB is absolutely the best call at the Rookie level.
    4. On offense, clock management and the running game are your friends. I got lucky with a TOTW 86 Andre Williams, but really any running back over 82 should be good enough to chew up some yards. If you want to pass, dink and dunk all day long. It's less turnover-prone, you prevent players from using my previous point against you, and you control the tempo of the game.
    5. Above all, be patient. I didn't chew through this is in one play session, in fact most of the time I'd just play during peak hours to increase my chances of getting a easier matchup, and only one or two matches at a time. Losing is lethal here, as you need to both make the playoffs then win a few playoff games, so make sure you're on top of your game when you do play.

    I refuse to give ea any of my hard earned money ripping packs i already pay $60 for the game.

    Be smile ea.

    step 1: drop your mut overall down to match your boost partner or your dummy Xbox.

    step 2: game setup
    Search settings
    Play call style enhanced
    Dmf% any

    Coin toss
    First choice kick
    Second choice with wind
    (Just to speed the process up the person losing the game received the ball run back to your end zone and giving safety up kick the ball back soon as the Playbook pop up you can quit out)

    (you can mess with the game set up to see what works best for you)

    Step 3: countdown 3 2 1 hit cn_A (is a high chance you will find your boosting partner if you search at the same time)

    step 4 the person lose the game going to give a safety up or a touchdown get back to the screen where you see the play box you can quit out.

    I just want to say this every sports you play you are against the clock you never know when these sports game server will get shut down.

    zoilus68I'm still a little confused. Pressing 3321 then A will make the other person'a xbox quit out? If so, I think I know what happened to my playoff game in my last MUT season now. . .
