    Play as Atlanta. The return man #21 is super fast and can evade tackles with his speed. Either let the other team score so they then kickoff to you, or win the coin toss in the beginning and try to return in on the first kickoff. If you lose the coin toss in the beginning you could always quit and start again to guarantee you start as the return team or if you fail in your return attempt. Try to use the Zig-Zag technique the other team will miss if you get the timing down.

    here a vid its done by rooster teeth all credit goes to them for making it

    ReliantGung hoDid it with San Francisco vs Dallas.

    Ironically, I fumbled the ball, recovered it and ran for the TD and still counted. Definitely zig-zag.

    UnstoppableKDLol after like 30 tries of getting tackled at ~50 yard line, presumably because I had my angles wrong, eventually Deion fumbled it and another guy on my team recovered it and I was able to run for the touchdown lol, never been so happy I fumbled before.

    For this one you must use Atlanta against New England and hope the kick is short if it is then you have a good chance to get past the first group when you get past the 50 however you must zig zag all the way dont run in a straight line unless you have distance. It seems when you dodge a few defenders you get faster this is key to getting a good start to the 50.

    I might make a video soon.

    BuddabaneI think what he is referring to is on defense use the nose tackle. When the ball is snapped move down slightly and dive towards the QB, in between the center and guard. You will get a sack on most passing plays, and loss of yards on any running plays up the middle.

    You definately want Atlanta. Play against New England since they are the worst team in the game. Be sure you recieve the opening kickoff that way if you don't suceed you just exit the game and start again, no time wasted. It probably took me 20 times to get this, but finally did. You have to be quick with your "zig zag" movements. The way I did it was run straight up or down then about 3 yrds forward then up or down, so on and so on. You have to get throught the first wave for this to work. Just keep trying you will get it!

    *I found it much easier to do this in the orginal graphics
