Regardless, I downloaded the free demo from the marketplace just to see what it was like. Aside from it being
1. My first offensive play from scrimmage: 79 yard TD run for Shaun Alexander. Ummm...Did I get lucky, is the game that easy, or did my accidental pressing of the A button to juke turn out to be the most incredible move ever?
2. Literally the next offensive play from scrimmage for the CPU after I kicked off: I return an interception of Roethlisberger for a TD.
3. The next offensive play from scrimmage after the returned interception: I pick Big Ben off again and return it for a TD.
What's going on here? And just for good measure, on my next offensive series, I get picked off by the CPU and they return it for a TD. Awesome. Good job EA.
