Rankings Recap: Unbeaten run sparks movement upward for FC Dallas

Staying unbeaten is starting to grab people’s attention.

MLS: Colorado Rapids at FC Dallas Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

As the four-game home stand concluded with FC Dallas picking up another draw over the weekend, the various power polls across the web took notice. (This week: 7, Last Week: 10)

Comment: Cristian Colman’s late equalizer showed that he may have a future yet in MLS and with Dallas. One question, though, is whether Dallas should be crowing about an unbeaten start. Technically true, but they’ve yet to beat a full-strength team this season.

ESPNFC (This week: 15, Last Week: 18)

Comment: Oscar Pareja’s team is undefeated this season, but it’s not the most impressive undefeated record. Three results are draws, including a comeback, single-point showing against Colorado on Saturday. FC Dallas needed 89 minutes to find the goal that salvaged the tie.

Soccer America (This week: 7, Last week: 10)

Comment: Late goal by much-maligned Cristian Colman rescued point at home. First road test of the season is at New England.

Pro Soccer USA (This week: 10, Last week: 10)

Comment: A lack of offensive firepower resulted in a last-minute equalizer to eek out a result at home against struggling Colorado. The team has failed to take advantage of opportunities -- and yet, remains unbeaten.
