No, they're not. At least not on Yahoo, which is what I believe the OP plays.
Take the Week 1 Buffalo-NE game. Check Buffalo's Week 1 stats--they are credited with 17 points allowed, not 19, because they didn't give up the safety. Similarly, the New England D is credited with 11 points allowed...they didn't give up Fletcher's fumble-recovery touchdown. They do get docked for the extra point.
Maybe the extra point is all that the rusty trombones
needed (I doubt it; isn't 7-13 points the category?), but the basic fact is, you aren't starting a team, you're starting a defensive unit.
