I have never seen this. If you dominate in the trenches you will win games. Teams with skilled players may make it a game, but eventually the more fundamentally sound teams will win. If we were to play the 49'ers 4 times a year currently, they would beat us 3 out of 4 times. The reason i use them as an example is because they exemplify fundamentally sound. As were some of the Bill Parcells teams of the 80's and 90's and the Jimmy Johnson teams of the early 90's. The reason the Cowboys were able to dominate the Bills was that the Bills ran a small 3-4 defense that couldnt match up with dallas's oline. the 86 Giants did the same thing to Denver. Denver was always the victim of this in superbowls until they too became funadamentally sound. These are just a few examples but you can look at many more to validate this point
