wait till the play is totally dead, and it goes to the screen where you can pick the next play. PAUSE it at this point, and as long as you have 1 time out left, you should have the option (i think two or three from the top) to CHALLENGE PLAY. Pick that, and ur good 2 go...

Also remember that you cannot challenge a play with 2 minutes or less in the 2nd and 4th quarters, the officials must do it themselves.

Actually I have noticed sometimes it won't let you challenge plays, regardless of what quarter or when in that quarter, I have had computer receivers catch balls out of bounds completely and it will rule it as a catch and won't let me challenge, I lost a game yesterday because the game said the receiver brought the ball down in the back of the endzone but he was plainly out of bounds before the ball ever touched him and he was never in bounds at anytime during the making of the catch. I tried to challenge but the option wasn't there it was with 4 minutes to go in the 4th quarter, i ended up losing by 6 points! The game is buggy at best when it comes to challenging plays, it is completely jacked up in almost every other aspect of game play.

Also it takes away the challenge option if you select replay first.

To Challenge, wait until the play is completely dead, then go to the menu, and the second or third option down will be "Challenge Play". There are a number of circumstances that might prevent you from Challenging, such as:

1. There are less then 2 minutes remaining in the 3rd or 4th quarter
2. You have selected "Replay" (either version)
3. You have no timeouts left. It requires at least one timeout to challenge a play, because you lose a timeout if you lost the challenge.

Pause it if it is a close play if u have any timeouts left it should be the third one down but do not replay it.
