It's more about run blocking success and run stopping success. If the C doesn't have success run blocking and the DT is strong at stopping the run, then it's a double whammy. If a small C is good against the run and takes on a big, flabby DT who gets pushed back, then the C is more likely to win.
In the final seven games of the 2013 season, the Chiefs averaged 34.6 points per game, scored 38 points or more 4 times, and went 2-5. The NFL has ruined the sport.
