Week 10 Power Rankings

1. LA Galaxy (5-1-3) - The Galaxy have scored four or more goals four times this year and are unbeaten in their last seven. With Robbie Keane back, Gio dos Santos contributing and Gyasi Zardes playing great all-around soccer, the Galaxy figure to be a nightmare for just about anyone to defend. Last Week: 1
2. Colorado Rapids (6-2-2) - It doesn't seem that long ago that we were wondering how the Rapids would handle losing Marco Pappa. With Jermaine Jones playing tremendous, the Rapids haven't missed a beat. Last Week: 2
3. Real Salt Lake (5-2-2) - Tough loss against Colorado for RSL as they obviously miss Joao Plata. Last Week: 3
4. Toronto FC (4-3-2) - Rookie Tsubasa Endoh scored his first goal as the Reds picked up their third win in the last four. Week: 6
5. Montreal Impact (4-3-3) - Showed off their explosiveness by rallying from a 4-1 deficit to salvage a draw with the Crew. The trio of Didier Drogba, Dominic Oduro and Ignacio Piatti is proving to be a lethal one. Last Week: 5
6. Philadelphia Union (4-3-1) - Hopefully the idle Union took advantage of their bye week. Wednesday's showdown with the high-powered Galaxy will be a great test for them. Last Week: 8
7. Seattle Sounders (4-4-1) - Jordan Morris has scored in four straight, and Seattle's won three of those matches. Last Week: 12
8. FC Dallas (5-4-2) - Outscored 8-0 in their last three, all losses. This can't all be because of the absence of Matt Hedges, can it? Last Week: 4
9. San Jose Earthquakes (4-3-3) - Clearly missing Quincy Amarikwa, but the Quakes are still in good shape overall. Last Week: 7
10. Orlando City SC (2-2-5) - The lack of wins is a concern, but at least they're not piling up losses. Last Week: 11
11. Vancouver Whitecaps (4-5-2) - Masato Kudo notched a goal and an assist and the Caps finally may have solved their problems up top. Last Week: 14
12. New York Red Bulls (3-6-1) - Unbeaten in their last three matches as the Red Bulls are looking more and more like last year's Supporters' Shield winners. Last Week: 13
13. Portland Timbers (3-4-3) - Tough loss for the Timbers against the Caps, but at least they've struck gold in back-up keeper Jake Gleeson. Last Week: 9
14. Sporting Kansas City (4-5-2) - Disappointing return to Houston for Brad Davis as Sporting's winless streak reached six games. Last Week: 10
15. New York City FC (3-3-4) - Khiry Shelton and Tommy McNamara are quietly off to great starts and City's made their way back to .500 after back-to-back wins. Now, can they start getting more out of Mix Diskerud? Last Week: 15
16. Houston Dynamo (2-5-2) - Cubo Torres made his first start of the season and he grabbed an assist AND helped his club to a rare victory. Coincidence? Last Week: 20
17. Columbus Crew (2-4-3) - A rough start to the season got worst as the Crew fumbled away a 4-1 second half lead against the Impact and now you have infighting between stars Kei Kamara and Federico Higuaín. Not good. Last Week: 17
18. New England Revolution (1-3-7) - Another week gone by and the Revs are still stuck on one win. That's just not going to cut it. Last Week: 16
19. DC United (2-4-4) - DC just isn't playing well, and when you look at their lineup, it's hard to say anyone's going up against them feeling intimidated. Last Week: 18
20. Chicago Fire (1-2-4) - Tough to gain wins when you've played a league low seven games. Eventually the schedule will pick up, the question is, will the wins? Last Week: 19
