    1st - use two controllers.
    2nd - whichever controller is assigned to your profile (1st one most likely) kickoff, with the 2nd controller take the return man and run him out of bounds at the 1 or 2 yd line.
    3rd - select field goal for controller 2 and field goal block for controller 1, also turn offsides off. take one of the defensive guys and stand him in front of the holder and kicker. start the kick meter and take control of your defender to make sure he BLOCKS the field goal attempt DO NOT TACKLE THE HOLDER if done correctly you should block the attempt and there should be a pile up for the ball in the endzone. if you win you should get the achievement.

    Falcon SVNThis does not work. I have tried over 100 times and it NEVER goes into fumble mode. Not even fucking once. FUCK this lame ass achievement. This is probably the most difficult achievement I have ever went for.

    Dragonborn GearYou're right about the EA Sports bar blocking what buttons to hit... I just mashed each one of the four buttons until I saw it move and kept mashing that one until it changed. Beyond that I found it best to wiggle the main controller a little bit so he wouldn't go tackle the guy and it was best to aim low and hit hard so that way the ball deflected right off the guy when I hit Y to block it.

    EthigyThanks for the above comment. Moving your guy slightly from left to right will prevent him from auto-tackling and you MUST press Y, otherwise you won’t block the FG. I also kept my guy slightly to the left, rather than directly in front, and as close as I could get.

    Okay, what I did for this is take any good team and play against your second controller, who I made the Bills. Second make sure that offsides penalty slider is at zero and you have unlimited rewinds active (usually you select this option at the game start screen where you set the game quarter length and weather options). I kicked the ball to them and with the second controller I ran the ball out to the 4 yard line and got tackled there by my team. I selected field goal for the Bills and field goal block for my team. What I did was to stand behind the center with my defender and rushed the holder once the ball was snapped. Now, don't tackle the holder but jump right in front of him. about 30 percent, or so, of the time I would block the kicked. The holder jumped on the ball really quick most of the time and it would net me a safety, which is not what I want. Well you only get one rewind per play, however, I found a way around this limit. When I missed the block or got a safety I rewound the play and then I ran into an offensive player. This would create a penalty. I would decline the penalty (as the Bills) and re-kick the field goal. If I didn't get the fight for the fumble cut screen then I would rewind and touch an offensive player in order to commit the penalty. Simple decline the penalty and re-try. Now this achievement took me about an hour to do because I kept running the ball too far out and when I would get the fight for the fumble screen I would be on the one or two yard line. When you kick from the 7 or 8 yards deep in the endzone if you get the fight for the fumble mini-game then it will always be in the endzone. So to recap, Make sure you playing with two controllers and are kicking, with your second controller, from deep in the endzone. Offsides turned off and rewinds to unlimited. The *MAJOR KEY* to this is if you mess it up or get the safety, make sure you rewind, commit the penalty, decline it, and retry. This way made it a great deal easier then having to rewind, mess it up again, get the safety punt, rekick it back to your second controller and set the field goal attempt up again. If you need any further explanation hit me up and I will give you a run down. Hope this helps.

    Falcon SVNCan anyone on TA please just spell out what buttons to hit instead of using big hit stick and strafe. I need to know what the fuck I'm doing wrong here. I keep getting safeties and never trigger the fight for fumble. Come on people if you are going to write a guide, at least spell out what buttons to push. Don't assume people can read your fucking minds. Negative!

    BillamusAt no time did I mention the "Hit Stick". I said to jump. this is accomplished by using the "Y" button (clearly indicated in the controls section of your menu). The "Hit" stick is done by simply pushing up on the right stick of the controller right before you hit another player. I hope this helps.

    First off edit the lions so that there QB and HB stats are real low make sure carrying is as low as possible use to controllers be the colts and vs. the lions outdoor stadium with heavy snow and 5 min quarters also make sure you have unlimited rewinds kick to the lions to start the game and resume setting an the guy out at about the 3 then edit the sliders in penalties turn off sides to 0 in cpu skills put fumbles to 0 in player skills for you controller make it rookie then player controls for 2nd controller should be all-madden now all your in game settings are good after that now to pick the play offence should be in gun spread flex WR then A for the draw and you can pick any play for defense now you want to be Mothis or Freeney and get on the other side of the line put the guy you his back is only a couple steps away from the center then snap it with the 2nd controller and go to hit the HB with your guy try and time it so you get to him just as he is getting the hand off make sure your holding down LB to strip the ball it will probably take a couple try’s so if you don’t get it rewind then get you guy on defense called for encroachment then decline the penalty with your 2nd controller the reason for this is so that you only get 1 rewind on each play but if you do the penalty it will reset it and you will get another rewind for that play then keep running the same thing I got it real quick like this.

    coffeenebulaNeither the Colts nor the Lions have outdoor stadiums. Both play in domes.
