Regardless of McCann doing this last season, it should still be called the "Ed Reed Award" since he owns the record. (108 yards)

As a Cowboys fan I find it funny, he might not even make the team this year.

As a Baltimore native and Ravens fan, i completely agree with #1, although i think i may be mistaken, i think he broke his own record with 109 yards

The achievements are named after things that happened LAST YEAR. They're not going to, and shouldn't be excepted to, break the pattern they chose for the achievement names because you like the Ravens.

Is there anyway to set this one up, or do I just have to wait for the opportunity?

I was wondering the same thing. Any time I get in an easy situation for this, the CPU runs the ball or something of that nature.

Ok, so check this:
I got this using the MUT (trying to work towards the MUT achievements, too). I played my MUT team against the Patriots (a good passing team). I built up a 35-14 lead, and around the 3rd quarter, whenever on offense, I would run the ball so that my RB would go out around my 20 yard line. I would kick a field goal (obviously not going to make it) so they would have possession around the 13. Set up in a prevent defense, adjust the CPU QB accuracy skill to around 30, and wait for a pick 6.

Does this actually work? Is it just a waiting game after you set it up or is it automatic?

You have to have a big enough lead to get the computer to throw the ball inside of the 10 yard line - the trend is just to run, but with a big lead, they will need to score right away. Force the computer to punt (easiest by going into the settings and adjusting the offsides penalties to 0, then just move one of your LBs by the QB and when he snaps the ball, sack him). Once he goes 3 and out, he'll punt on 4th down. Take the punt and (if necessary) run backwards so that you end up out of bounds around YOUR 20 yard line. On 1st down, select special teams and kick a field goal - you won't make it, but the point is to give them good position to throw for the end zone every down. If you have a big enough lead (around 21+ points), the QB will try to score quick so they can get the ball back. T

Take the CPU accuracy down to 30, and when they throw for the end zone, press B to control the player nearest the ball and Y to try to pick the pass off in the end zone. It is not automatic - you will have to avoid being tackled during the foot race. This is why I used the MUT team with elite secondary against Tom Brady (who loves to pass). Good luck, it took me a couple of games to get this.

Just get a big lead and then keep turning the ball over inside your own 20 yard line. They will make a mistake sooner or later. Big props to #13 for doing it with Keith Brooking. I picked off Alex Smith twice in the end zone with Hawk and Matthews but they were too slow to make it all the way. I got it with Charles Woodson late in the game. GO BLUE!!!

this is how u do it easily (i already had bengals with low speed) and just put the fs ss and cb on man on the 1 and only wr and all other def players on qb spys and on off have everyone block except that one 1 on a streak into the endzone

I got this by using the Jets vs the Cardinals with 2 controllers with each on rookie and just passed with the cardinals every play in the endzone and eventually returned it with Antonio Cromartie and every time Arizona turned it over I would just do a field goal

hey guys, just wanted to say that there is an easier way (unless you have like a 95+ ultimate team). I do not have this achievement but I picked one off at the 1 and ran it back 99 yards so i know that this will work, and while there is no exact way to MAKE the quarterback throw the ball to you at the right place i have some tips to help maximize your chances for multiple achievements at once.

Instead of using a MUT just go to the rosters and make a "dream team". I have tom brady, greg jennings, troy palamalu, ed reed, vince wilfork, etc. Grab everybody above 90 ovr you can. (I ran it back with rogers-cromartie). During this same game i also got "put da team on my back" (99Yd Jennings TD) and Deshawn Jackson award, NY Giants award etc. While this has essentially the same effect as the M

Done with Ed Reed 106 yards turning around a 7 point game that was almost a 14 point game to win with a field goal as time expired... For me it was the Disney Film ending award

@21 you can't do it with 2 controllers that is why it didn't pop up.

Got this last night with Ed Reed on all pro! Picked it off in the back right corner of the endzone, ran about 10 yards up the sideline to make a guy miss, then immediately went straight left, then up the left sideline. Nobody was able to catch me

I'm still having trouble with this one, which is frustrating because I've done this before and when it's an achievement I can't lol.
