Not very big comebacks, but still exciting. I think I can beat them though when it comes to the amount of points needed to be scored.
It was about the 3rd game I had ever played on Madden 09 and I used the difficulty All-Pro, I was still getting used to the controls and I decided I would do a franchise with the Lions. I was playing the Packers, my defense was doing very well stopping the run but somehow Aaron Rodgers was carving us up. My O-Line was horrible and I couldn't get the running game stared and Roy Williams kept dropping the ball every time I passed it to him, so Moore and MegaTron became my main targets.
By halftime it was 17 - 3.
3rd Quarter, Rodgers continues to carve us apart dropping two more TD bombs on us making it 31 - 3. After the 4th TD I started getting angry and determined and I began really getting the hang of the controls and the flow of the game.
I persist with the run and eventually got some good gains which allowed me to set up the PA Pass. Williams runs a comeback route, MegaTron runs a route over the middle and I send Moore deep on a post - he gets wide open - and I hit him with a deep ball and score a TD making it 31 - 10.
I drive the ball up the field, my o-line decided it'd be a good idea to let the Packers penetrate and stop the run so I had to rely on my passing. 5 minutes left in the 3rd Quarter so I had to make quick decisions. In the Redzone MegaTron runs a post then flag route (running to the middle then cutting out to the corner) knowing he has a height and skill advantage I hit him and he catches the ball over Woodson - TD! The score was then 31 - 17.
I kick the ball off and get the returner down within their redzone. My pass rush decided to step up I got 2 sacks in a row then forced an interception. Bodden ran 24 yards for an interception returned for a TD. Score: 31 - 24.
Enter the 4th quarter on a roll and with a lot of confidence. First drive I turn the ball over but force the Packers 3 and out. I decide I MUST continue running the ball and gain some offensive balance. I swapped some of my linemen around and it helped a little.
Driving up the field I reach the endzone, roll my QB out to the right out of the pocket, my TE running a flag route, with one half of his body open, I throw the ball as hard as possible and he catches it. Score: 31 - 31.
The Packers go 3 and out, then it was my turn to go 3 and out. The Packers get a field goal. Score: 34 - 31
1:30 left on the clock and with my running game being a little effective I decide to use it again. Unfortunately I started at the 10 due to a holding penalty. First turn runs go for 1 yard then a 3 yard loss.
35 Seconds on the clock with all my timeouts I run Kevin Smith right up the middle. WIDE OPEN!!! I blaze down the field with Kevin Smith with defenders in my wake and Al Harris the closest player getting closer. I score the Touchdown and K.Smith dunks the ball over the goalpost and he gets crash tackled by his team mates in celebration.
Packers - 34 Lions - 38
So far one of the best games I've played on Madden 09.

Solid Snake 4Life
What have been your best comebacks in this years Madden. Mine is in my franchise. I was playing as the Cowboys (My favorite team since I began watching football and Panthers as I'm from Carolina) and it's week 2 against the eagles. Well they take off and score 2 touchdowns in the first half. We get the ball in the second half but we have to punt. They get a feild goal. So once we get the ball back thiers 2 minutes in period 3 so we only have 7 minutes left. Something kicks us into overdrive as I get 2 touchdowns one with a 2 point conversion to make it 17-15.
So theres a little over 2 minutes left. They give it to westbrook who Ware makes cough up the ball. We get it on our own 26. We take the ball down to thier 34. I miss the touchdown pass so it's 3rd and 5. With 5 seconds left I call in the kicker. He does a 50+ yeard field goal to win us the game.
