In my opinion that is only true for sports that have best of 7 series. It is not true for a single elimination sport such as football, where a lesser team could beat a better team by luck. That's why football has the saying "Any given Sunday".
I don't believe there's a way for an underdog to win an NFL playoff game based purely on luck.
While the team losing might have been the better one on paper there's no argument to be made they were on the field if they end up being eliminated.
I agree. How many times have we said "the better team did not win today".
I don't know about you but I have never said that.
