Sorry for the newb question. Is it possible to play online with and against others who aren't on your friends list? I think it'd be fun to be a LB with 21 random people who may or may not know what they are doing.
I've never played online before...been playing this game since 98, but only career mode with a friend and occasionally player career mode when I have the urge to play by myself. Thus, have no online friends to put that together. Basically I want to control one player and at least have a real teammate or two or three.
