Myself and others have been pointing this out, but it seems to fall on deaf ears. I hope TB and the Pats can pull this off, they are the last of the high powered offense limited defense teams left, the three others SF NYG and Ravens are all defensive minded, although the Pats defense Has gotten better. Joe Posnanski Â» Posts Offense First Â« History does not favor a Super Bowl win for Tom Brady and the Patriots. (AP) The New England Patriots are trying to do something that, best I can tell, has never been done in NFL history. They are trying to become the first outdoor team to win a Super Bowl with a great offense and a lousy defense, at least by the statistics. I have no idea if they can pull it off. In looking back through the Super Bowl years, it seems that only two teams â€” the 2009 Saints and the 2006 Colts â€” have won a Super Bowl with a statistically great offense and a statistically lousy defense. Iâ€™ll use points scored and points allowed as a simple barometer for offense and defense*.
