best bet is to play on Rookie, and use a really good offense against a poor defense

am i doing something wrong?

i pick texans vs pats im the pats
i go in on rookie difficulty and change my offensive sliders to 100 and their defensive sliders to 0
i pick wr screen pass and go over and over to randy moss

i cannot seem to get this to pop

i got 27 straight but after 14 brady got hurt and had to switch qbs dont know if that makes it start over or not
does it have to be in 1 drive because i have got 22 straight to moss in 2 drives
also alot of the time ill pass and the reciever will just let it bounce of them.... any way to prevent this?

PLEASE HELP ME this is my last achievement....

No you don't have to manually catch them. And sometimes you have to wait till the game is over for the cheevo to pop.

this achievement is so annoying, stats maxed, diff on rookie, get to around 12 to 15 in a row then he drops it every time! isnt it their job to catch balls??

This achievement was very annoying, I finally got 20 completions & simmed through the rest of the game. I thought this would also vouch for the 10 Catches achievement but I guess fucking not, since the developers decided to make it literally two different achievements.

BTW, take comment's 3 advice, it really worked. I also traded the all the top lineman to a the same team so the HB doesn't get trashed.

I got both achievements at once.... Not sure why it didn't work for you

This achievement is a pain in the @$$. I've tried everything and I ALWAYS get between 12 to 15 passes but can NEVER get past 15. The receiver or back always dropps the ball or it gets deflected.

I got 17 completions in one drive, then they got it and punted it to me and then i got my last 3 but didnt get the cheevement even after the game ended. So does it have to be in one drive maybe?

ok so the way to do this is to be pats vs texans. set up 5min quaters when you recieve just go back to the 10 and go down. now on every play just select play by player go right once to HB then go right to page 14, in the bottom right it will says HB screen or something close to that, snap the ball with A wait a second or two then hit RB. Try to gain about 3-4 yards everytime but no more than that just enough to get 1st downs and you can do this in one drive in the 1st quater. use settings as needed to make this easier.

If anyone still has problems with this i think i may have figured out the problem. You need to make sure you dont throw 10 in a row to one player, use a second player for the 10th and 20th completions and it will pop, that seems to be what i had to do.

I may be wrong but it's what finally got it to pop for me, good luck!

Just keep throwing it the tightend on an out route. They will substitute players when they are tired, so you will throw about to each tightend

This is Bullshit. I got 14 in a row with Mushin Muhammed on CHI and did not get the 10 in a row. Then I played with SD and used Antonio Gates and got 24 in a row and I still have not received either of the achievements. Do you have to play in league mode? I was doing the quick play with 5 minute quarters on both.

I finally done this after trying all sorts all day. This is a genuinely easy way of doing these.
My Madden ->
Rosters ->
Player Management ->

Hold LT and select Patriots.
Max out all stats to: T. Brady, L. Maroney. (Optional)-> K. Faulk and M.Vrabel.
Then save All.

Repeat previous steps but when you hold LT to choose a team, choose Browns.
Empty all stats to following players: T. Washington, O. Roye, W. McGinest, R. Tucker, K. Wright, G. Baxter, L. Bentley, A. Davis, K. Shaffer, L. Bodden, S. Jones, B. Pool, D. Jackson, K. Wimbley and E. Wright.
(This last step is tedious as hell but if you are getting stressed out by this achievement like I did then it will pay off.) And save all again after doing these as you don't want to redo this part!

Start a match with the two teams

You being the patriots obviously, Rookie difficulty and bump the time limit up to 10-15 mins.

When your team has the ball, select the play (By player) scroll right once (HB) and choose Maroney. Find the HB Screen play and use that. (After the first time you can use recent plays and find it there as it will make this a little quicker) Anyway, when you start the play, let Maroney (RB) run a few steps and then press RB. Don't worry about being tackled as after reducing their stats they probably won't be quick enough to reach you before the throw and even if they do they probably can't even tackle you.

When Maroney has the ball, run out to the side somewhere between where the ball started and the first down line. Try to fit this in twice as you are going to need to do this 20 times to ge

get this achievement. (same drive)

Then once you have done this 20 times, simply simulate the rest of the match and the achievements should pop afterwards.

I hope this helps if there's anyone out there still needing to do this. Good luck guys!

(Sorry about the broken up post, stupid limits!")

Just use two controllers play as any team put the second controller's team in punt block formation and use the TE Dual route just keep throwing it to your TE and do no huddles very simple and easy. It also works for the catch 10 straight achevo too.

Okay people,

Do screen pass. last play, pass to b.
Have other team block punt.

ALL 20 MUST be in same running back is a MUST!

I used a combination of comment 16, and 21, where I boosted stats of my patriots of Brady, Marony, and Morris, since Morris and Marony switch out. Played with another controller and kept picking fg block with them as the texans. Just kept track of my 20, and kept running up field worked out well. Thanks for the help everyone!

I just got this at the same time as the "10 Completions" one (5 min quarters). I used the Chargers, just like described. I caught it 8 times with L.T., then they replaced him with Turner. I caught 2 with him, then caught the last 10 with L.T., all on ONE drive, making use of Quick Huddle. The important thing was that my QB, Rivers, threw all 20 completions in a row.
