Power Rankings: FC Dallas stops sliding

New, comment

FCD stopped sliding, but that doesn't mean they're climbing.

MLS: New York Red Bulls at FC Dallas Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to another week of the MLS Power Rankings. FC Dallas had to rally for a 2-2 home draw against the New York Red Bulls, despite being down a man for the final 60 minutes.

While the team only gaining 1 point from the home match, can outwardly be viewed as a disappointing result, it may in fact signal a return to form for FCD. The team, despite being down a man, played with a fire and urgency that had been missing for more than a month.

Only a couple of sites posted rankings, so a couple of very different rankings have been included.

MLS - Ranking 11 (Last Week 12)

Comments: Only a draw, but BRUH. Dallas might be back.

Soccer America - Ranking 14 (Last Week 14)

Comments: As a reward for its courageous 2-2 tie in which it scored twice playing 10 against 11 following the ejection of Jacori Hayes, FCD gets the daunting task of opening Atlanta’s new stadium. A great game by Michael Barrios, who won the penalty kick converted by Mauro Diaz, highlighted a remarkable team effort.

Stumptown Footy- Ranking 15 (Last Week 14)

Comments: SFPI has a formulaic way of determining their power rankings. FCD currently sits 15th, and is predicted to make the playoffs as the 6th seed.
