That was the very first team to win a Super Bowl with an Average (league rating) Defense. All others before them were usually Top-5 with some going outside of that to Top-10, but not middle-of-the-pack that those Dallas teams were. Now, Defense doesn't matter much, though Tampa Bay's was very good, Top-10, for certain, if not Top-5.
