I can't make a passing play for the life of me. Any tips would be appreciated.

The passing may seem a little bit weird in this game at first. But basically, once you snap the ball back, you will see the three spots that you can pass the ball to, and whichever one you are aiming at should be flashing. So just move left and right to aim at the different ones, and when you see one of your players moving towards the spot, aim and pass.

I was luckily able to unlock the coaching achievement after my 2nd attempt, I used a pass play then for def used safety blitz and I selected left CB and was able to get an interception near goal line then I used run play to get the 12 straight points to unlock.

This game goes completely over my head. My sports knowledge is practically none existent.

Can someone please explain what I'm supposed to be doing in simple terms?

Short answer: Scoring a touchdown.

Long answer: Score a touchdown before the ball explodes. The ball can be reset back to 'cool' at midfield, then you have to score a touchdown once you cross midfield. You can run the ball or pass to pick the play. To run, just hit 'A' to hike the ball and press 'A' again to give it to the running back. Then, just avoid the other guys. To pass, press 'A' to hike, then 'A' again with the left stick to highlight the spot where you are to throw it. Once he catches it, avoid the other guys.
