If the offense, defense, or special teams fails enough, the team is going to lose. None is really so vastly more important than the others that a team can be completely deficient on a unit and still win because the other unit(s) are dominant.

A partial explanation to consider is the fact that teams who lose a lot of games inevitably inherit inflated total defense statistics over the course of a season. Their opponents often let off the gas and run clock in the 4th quarter once the win has been secured. On the contrary, teams who win a lot of games tend to give up a lot of garbage yards/points toward the end of games. It all adds up at the end of the season. Just another example of the extreme blurriness of football statistics in general.

Its pretty obvious, I mean you need to have an offense that can give the D a rest and put points on the board in the red zone.

The offense needs a D that will stop the run and force the opposing D back on the field and force turnovers.

The two can't operate as effectivley as possible without the other.

Balance.
