Who is Ahead, Defenses or Offenses?
There's a reason they play the games. Teams don't always play the way stats and power rankings suggest they are supposed to. That's often evident early in the pro and college football seasons because some teams are very different from year to year. In Week 1 of the NFL season a year ago, it was a Super Bowl rematch between the Carolina Panthers and the Denver Broncos.
However, the offense wasn't that sharp (again) as the great defense of Denver pulled the upset behind a kid quarterback whose only previous NFL regular season action was taking a knee. Denver won 21-20 despite scoring just 7 points in the first three quarters. The defenses were way ahead of the offenses, with a combined 5 sacks and 3 picks.
