    Hey folks, bare with me as this is my first ever solution and its a bit of a strange one with this cheevo, but in doing this you will acquire all Face of The Franchise cheevos.

    You have to play this somewhat questionable "Story Mode" for a few hours as there is no way to sim these Legacy scores like previous games. First off, STAY AS A QB AND DO NOT SWITCH TO CLASSIC MODE, you will void any legacy score earned on that save.

    After playing for a while you will eventually get drafted and follow a series of scripted events within a NFL Career and although its hilarious at times its more tedious so just bare with it. Turn your settings to the following

    -5 Min quarters
    - Pro difficulty
    - Arcade game type

    each time you are fired into a game just hit super sim and play "Offence only" and rack up stupid stats and scores then when you get a 3-4 touchdown lead sim to the end of the game but just make sure the CPU doesn't catch you and then beat you as it affects your legacy.

    doing this i got the achievement just before my 2nd Superbowl in year 6, its only 2-4 games a season you play so just put up as many crazy stats as you can. Each game is <5 minutes so its just a grind. The way you play the game and decision making in some moments are totally unrelated to any type of score and usually only affect the team performance etc...

    Hope this is easy to make sense of and Happy Hunting

    TheJeffCoteI’ll just add that if you want to play on rookie you will get this just after the third super bowl pending you get all the game goals set for you.

    Bobby Blane3I'm on the EA trial and haven't started this part yet. Is there a way to retry a game if you fail an objective or would you have to play the whole FotF type again?

    GTASAROCKS88You would have to restart, I personally just ran Slants. Throw to the receiver crossing the middle from the left side to the right

    OnAirJannickIf you play on rookie you can just throw hail marys with the 4 recievers running straight forward

    Snooch2theBoochIf you get the goal to have 2 or fewer sacks in a game, does the game count getting tackled at all as a QB as a sack? Because I ran the ball and threw slants the entire game and never got sacked once, though I did rush as the QB a few times and got tackled but it wasn’t behind the line of scrimmage so it wasn’t technically a sack, but at the end of the game it said I failed my goal? It’s the only goal I failed so far so I’m really hoping I don’t have to restart the whole mode to get the last legacy achievement lol

    UPDATE: Got this achievement. There’s a little bit of leeway because even on rookie and even after missing the sack game day goal I was almost at my final legacy rank after the Super Bowl in 2026, but the game ends in 2027 I believe. I got this rank shortly after starting the 2027 season. I don’t even think I played a game. If I did it was only the first game.
