Rankings Recap: FC Dallas takes a hit in Week 9

The first loss of the season took a toll on the rankings for FCD.

MLS: FC Dallas at New York City FC Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The unbeaten streak is dead and gone for FC Dallas after their 3-1 loss to David Villa and New York City FC over the weekend. The latest Power Rankings across the web are out and they certainly reflect on the loss as FCD moved down in nearly ever poll. (This week: 7, Last Week: 4)

Comment: And then there were no undefeated teams in MLS, after Dallas lost to NYCFC. On the bright side, Santiago Mosquera opened his MLS account. Dallas will get the chance to play spoiler to LAFC in the expansion team’s second home game.

Comment: The last MLS unbeaten is unbeaten no more. It shouldn’t be a surprise that the clean start for FC Dallas came to an end in the notoriously difficult surroundings of Yankee Stadium, where the home team is nearly unbeatable..

Soccer America (This week: 8, Last week: 4)

Comment: This may not be the FCD seen in the past two seasons but despite falling from the unbeaten ranks it has conceded the fewest goals (six) in the league. And Santiago Mosquera scored his first MLS goal to tie the game seven minutes after FCD fell behind.

Comment: No longer unbeaten after a 3-1 loss in NYC. Dallas again will be tested when it travels to LAFC this week.
