1. Pick a solid team (Seahawks, Steelers, etc) 2. Run the ball as much as you can, while running clock down to 1 second every time. 3. Only pass if you're facing 2 and 10 and 3 and 6. Otherwise, run run run and keep opponent's offense on the sidelines.
This formula has me at 7-4 online. I lost 2 games by one point bc I'm greedy and went for 2 against two tough offensive teams and I suck at defense (hence, why I run the clock).
I just played Seahawks vs. Broncos online. Broncos literally ran maybe 4 plays at most the whole half bc I ran it down from second half kickoff to about 1 minute left and scored a TD.
Boy you sound like a blast to play with. This is why I hate online.
It may not technically be 'cheap', but it's definitely lame, especially with running in this game being so easy. People online don't punt either, so that's 4 downs to milk the clock and basically fall forward for at least 3 yards every play....sounds fun. ~_~
