My son loves to play with offsides turned off so he can line up in the backfield when he's on defense.

If he's willing to tinker with the settings as much as he did, he could have forced even more fumbles by going to an all-shotgun playbook for both teams and lining up a defender (offsides) between the center and QB every play. Boom, every single snap hits the defender and drops to the ground for a fumble.

take away the defender's catching ability and you got a game where every play starts with a fumble!
