Except that their defense has surpassed their offense, even as offense improved. So the defense had a larger impact than their offense, yes?

I can be more precise: My suspicion is that offensive rating would correlate better with win rate than defensive rating would correlate with win rate.

I'm a Niner fan so I've been watching them all year. Clearly their offense has improved and psychologically it's lifted the team up. Purdy's first game as a starter resulted in 35 points - a HUGE offensive impact. But the Niners' and Chiefs data in this chart seem to point in opposite directions.
