When on defense, select a defensive lineman and move him a couple of steps back from the line of scrimmage. When the ball is snapped, run forward and Hitstick the offensive lineman. This will almost always knock him down and put you on a path for the quarterback.
If there is a player you dislike, do the following to make him suffer. Go to "Features", then to "Rosters" and select his team. Choose the player and go to "Attributes". Reduce his injury to "0". This may take awhile; you may also want to set the game to four or five minute quarters.
