There is an upside - IF the team can get over that hump, they have a much easier time making the playoffs with a decent seed, while being able to withstand late season injury and fatigue more so than if the schedule was reversed. The issue is the Raps always have so much roster turnover that they just get destroyed by the tough early schedule.
