Re: Home win streak continues, but 30 +point streak is over, is a good Defense more important?

It's not about what is MORE important.
No defense is perfect. Every defense, no matter how good, whether they blitz or play conservative wil give up a bunch of points some week.
No offense is perfect. Every offense, no matter how good, whether they run or air it out, will score 20 or less some week.
The trick is having a team that doesn't have a unit that is a lost cause.
You just need to step up once in a while to pick up the slack. This offense has already outscored other teams 35+ to 25+ several times this season.
IT was unreal, awesome, spectacular to win a 16-13 game on the final drive!!!!!!!!!!!
Kudos to the "D"!
This is the kind of game NE has been losing 28-20 the last few seasons, and that last TD would be too little too late, because the "D" broke!
They played great this week! I want to see a few more like this, because they'll need at least one of these in the post-season when they have to play elite "D"s like Baltimore, in some terrible weather conditions.
My favorite win in several years!
And no side is more important than the other.... it's how the team picks each other up!
