This "mini-guide" aims to help you unlock the achievement in the fastest way possible.

Right, so once you have loaded up Original Mode, you need to do the following:

Press cn_back and in the Button Settings choose:
cn_A button = A button
cn_B Button = B Button
cn_X button = C button
cn_Y Button = D button

Then in the Game Settings set the following:
Duration = 1 M 0 S (I will explain in a bit)
Difficulty = Easy
Player Play Choosing Time = Slowest (just so you relax when choosing plays)
Computer Play Choosing Time = Fastest

The game will now restart with the new settings. Do not forget to load a lot of credits using cn_LB because we are going to need one at the end of every quarter.

Moving on, choose whichever team you want and start the game. You will be on the receiving end of the kickoff by default. Remember to ALWAYS choose passing plays by selecting "Shotgun - 5". After the snap, just look for your receiver at the top of screen and once he is open pass him the ball using cn_X.

Important: Remember to create a save before every play you attempt. Abuse the save system. This way you will be sure to score a TD and the 2-point conversion afterwards before the end of the half.

Now, the reason why we set the quarter length to 1 minute is because, if all goes well, you will need about 90 seconds or so for a touchdown and the extra 2-point conversion (choose pass-play after the TD with the same shotgun play). For those not familiar with American Football, you continue at the beginning of the 2nd quarter where you left off at the end of the 1st quarter. That is why I said it takes about 90 seconds (half of the 2nd quarter would be gone by the time you score).

Once you do, sit back and watch as the other team try to score. Most likely time will run out. At the start of the 3rd quarter, your team will be kicking off this time as play restarts at the start of the 3rd. Make sure to save here. Again, sit back and watch as the game unfolds. Your team will need to get their hands on the ball (4 stops below 10 yards or an interception) at some point and with the game being on easy, that is more than likely to happen. If that scenario breaks then you can reload your save until your defense succeeds in stopping the CPU's offense. (FYI I left my controller on the table and my team managed to stop the other team almost every time without me interfering).

After retrieving the ball, choose your shotgun play and do not be in a hurry to snap the ball into play. Let it automatically snap (you will kill approximately 15 seconds off the clock) and remember to keep those saved files coming.

That is it for Game 1. For the next game the same steps apply only with the pass play "Shotgun - 6". For the third game the pass play is "Shotgun - 11" (which gains less yards than the previous two but by utilizing the save system, that will be just fine). That's all there is to it.

Happy hunting and godspeed!

p.s. You can use the same play pattern for the High Score and Caravan mode achievements just like BigDaddyMafia mentioned in his solution there.
