RankTeamComment
1 (5)Sounders FCQuickly becoming, if not already, the most feared offense in MLS: 13 goals in four games.
2 (1)Real Salt LakeRemains the league’s lone unbeaten, but disappointingly coughed up two points at home.
3 (2)FC DallasTied for the best record in MLS with 16 points but also the most goals conceded with 14.
4 (3)Sporting K.C.Fans leaguewide will be stunned to hear Aurelien Collin’s red card was his first since 2011.
5 (4)L.A. GalaxySomehow has played five games while others are at nine: got to love MLS scheduling.
6 (8)ColumbusHave to see it to believe it: Dominic Oduro had a slice of pizza designed into his hair.
7 (7)Toronto FCBye came at a good time as Michael Bradley used the break to get a needed foot procedure
8 (6)ColoradoSilver lining to the humbling in Seattle was homegrown Dillon Serna scoring his first goal.
9 (11)D.C. UnitedFabian Espindola was huge in a eye-catching 4-1 win vs. Dallas with two goals, assist.
10 (9)VancouverDidn’t show much for 85 minutes at RSL, but brought the fireworks in a stunning finish.
11 (12)New EnglandOn a nice 3-1-1 run heading to Toronto, where it has gone 0-2-5 all-time at BMO Field.
12 (13)N.Y. Red BullsBradley Wright-Phillips stole some of Clint Dempsey’s spotlight with four goals last week.
13 (10)HoustonNo team has been worse on the road, having lost three of four and been outscored 8-1.
14 (15)ChicagoBye week should have involved some PK practice after two crucial misses this season.
15 (14)PhiladelphiaHeads to Seattle on a woeful seven-game winless streak, one short of a franchise record.
16 (18)San JoseNewcomer Yannick Djalo from Portugal opened his account with game winner vs. Chivas.
17 (19)MontrealMarco Di Vaio has been caught offside an MLS-most 14 times, even missing three weeks.
