Just to add to the above post, the preseason DOES count, and the defining moment has to be successful (i.e. convert on 4th down).

I used the Colts and made multiple saves prior to preseason game 1 against the Lions. The Lions are good because even Manning can run against their D-line successfully. If I won the toss, I would receive and then after the kickoff, ran Goal Line Q-Sneak until I got the ball to the 43-46 yard line. If I overshot or lost the toss I would quit/restart. Wait for the clock to run down (Use Settings to turn the play clock off and have the quarter time set to 1 minute), then when you are 4th and long and 3 or less seconds hit the timeout (back) button. I would also use the Special Teams: Kneel and Special Teams: Spike in order to make sure I was on 4th down or to start/stop the clock. It will give you and instant Defining Moment. Choose the Hail Mary, then the 3rd option on the right. It will convert 75% of the time or so. As stated, your receiver MUST catch the ball, if not, quit and restart. He doesn't need to score, and you don't have to win.

At the start of the 2nd half, super sim to the end of the game. Win or lose, at the box score make sure to Quick Save, and choose ALL. YOU HAVE TO SAVE THE PROFILE. Load up a new save and replay the Lions again another 19 times.

The achievement will unlock on the 20th successful Defining Moment as the 3rd quarter begins. It pops in the game, not after the game is over.
