Monero's Per-Block Difficulty Adjustment

So, does Monero's per block difficulty adjustment help defend against a 51% attack? A 51% attack is when more than 50% of the network's hashrate is used to split the chain and make a longer one then merge later. Monero's difficulty adjustment is every block though, so does that reduce the chances? The malicious chain created has to be longer for it to be seen as the "real" one, but if the difficulty adjustment on the split chain adjusts for the fake hashrate wouldn't it at least help protect against it?
