FC Dallas enters the second month of the season as the only unbeaten team in the Western Conference. The three home games and two bye weeks probably helped that out a good bit but that is a healthy place to be in at this stage in the season.
The bye week didn’t sway a lot of the power polls out there as the club hosts Colorado this weekend.

Comment: FC Dallas move up despite sitting out the week due to the unusual number of road wins in Week 5. Next up for them is a home game against a suddenly resurgent Rapids side. Can Roland Lamah continue his scoring ways?

Comment: No match for FC Dallas this week, so they lose a bit of ground to the surrounding pack.
