    In the 4th quarter of a game in any game mode before you select a play click on adjustments then change any of the sliders it doesn’t matter which you change. Then back out and choose a play, achievement will pop before the ball is snapped.

    Confirmed. You have to be sure to NOT sim to the end of the game. Changing the quarter lengths to 1 minute does help get the achievement quicker though.

    dwr3ck3dI just got this to pop in Face of the Franchise mode when they drop you in your first high school game in the 4th quarter. First thing I did was go make an adjustment and got the achievement as soon as I picked a play.

    This is pretty easy in any mode/situation, but I did it in MUT.

    1. Go to solo challenges, NFL Epics, Adrian Peterson, and pick the first challenge (difficulty/stars won't make a difference).
    2. You'll start in the 4th quarter on offense. Go down to coaching adjustments.
    3. Change ANY of the options in coach adjustments. I just changed the top one to conservative and it popped.

    Please feel free to message or comment with any questions. Happy hunting!

    erod550I had to complete the couple intro challenges and the 4 Tryout challenges before the NFL Epics challenges were available. But once it was there, this worked perfectly.
