Power Rankings: FC Dallas continues to dominate rankings

Being undefeated has helped to sway most...

MLS: FC Dallas at Real Salt Lake Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports

FC Dallas won 3-0 at Real Salt Lake to remain the loan unbeaten team in MLS. Despite being unbeaten, there's still sites finding excuses to rank other teams ahead of FCD.

MLS - Ranking 1 (Last Week 1)

Comments: FCD remain the league's last unbeaten, and its best road team, thanks to a highly opportunistic win at Salt Lake. The sole bummer: an inability to give Javi Morales a cameo vs. his old club. NYCFC will provide a sterner test on Sunday

ESPNFC - Ranking 1 (Last Week 2)

Comments: Back to the top for Dallas, which not only kept its unbeaten start alive but also grabbed three points on the road. The start might not look that impressive, with Dallas tied for first place in the West and behind Toronto in the overall table, but coach Oscar Pareja's team has played fewer games (eight) than most.

Goal - Ranking 1 (Last Week 1)

Comments: Dallas grabbed a 3-0 win at Rio Tinto Stadium and made it look routine. Sure, RSL isn't the same side from a few years ago, but Dallas made sure that the gulf in class between the two sides was on full display.

The Score - Ranking 1 (Last Week 1)

Comments: FC Dallas continues steamrolling opponents and remains unbeaten in 2017. Has there been a more fearsome team in MLS history?

Soccer America - Ranking 1 (LastWeek 2)

Comments: FCD scored its earliest goal of the season – a Max Urruti penalty kick in the third minute – but didn’t take command until Matt Hedges headed home a Kellyn Acosta corner kick midway through the second half. Urruti netted again in stoppage time with the last of FCD’s 10 shots on goal, and a six-save game by Jesse Gonzalez bagged the shutout.

Planet Futbol - Ranking 1 (Last Week 2)

Comments: Orlando’s four-game win streak was used as justification for knocking FCD out of the top spot, but that proved to be the wrong call, based on this past week's evidence. Dallas returns to the top spot, thanks not just to Orlando’s terrible week but also FCD’s own 3–0 win away from home at Real Salt Lake. Maxi Urruti had a double, FC Dallas is still unbeaten, all is back as it was before.

Once a Metro - Ranking 2 (Last Week 3)

Comments: Still unbeaten in MLS 2017 after eight games, and if you think beating even a struggling team in the league in its own stadium is easy - kindly have a look at RBNY's latest result. This week's 3-0 result was also FCD's biggest win of the season to date.

Stumptown Footy - Ranking 1 (Last Week 1)

Comments: The lone unbeaten team in MLS travelled to Salt Lake City and rode an Urruti Brace to a 3-0 win over RSL in the first trip to Rio Tinto as a visitor for RSL all time assist leader Javier Morales. Morales never saw action on the field, however.
