TEAMS ON THE RISE
- LAFC – Can’t get any higher than the top.
- Philadelphia Union – 3 straight wins, 4th in the East.
- Chicago Fire – Draw vs. a surging TFC, and we’ve yet to see Gaitan at his best
- San Jose Quakes – Technically, when you win your’re first game of the season, you’re on the rise.
- Orlando City – Goals are coming, and so are points!
TEAMS ON THE FALL
- DC United – Rooney sees red in a blowout loss to LAFC, and a draw to Montreal have people scratching heads.
- Sporting KC – Tired legs and a 5-0 thumping in Concacaf Champions League.
- Portland Timbers – Has the championship window closed?
- Red Bulls New York – 3 straight losses. This hasn’t happened since May 2017.
