Hey mulligan man!
Fumbled the ball on your own 20-yard line? Threw an interception during Sudden Death? Wish you could take it back without restarting the game? Now you can, with EA Rewind, also known as "EA Mulligan," an optional postplay pop-up that literally rewinds the action and lets you try the same play from the line of scrimmage or audible a new one. The number of do-overs you get per game varies depending on the "gameplay style" (a complementary difficulty modifier that alters the complexity of your playbook) — and it's available only offline. It may sound gimmicky, but trust me: It becomes indispensable after your safety botches a dive tackle and a bread-and-butter short-yardage play suddenly develops into a runaway touchdown (not to mention the fact that the CPU often switches up its plays to boot). If your buddy reverses your touchdowns during couch play a little too often, you can always turn this feature down or disable it entirely.
