1. Indianapolis (1-0). Champs picked up right where they left off, and shut down a high-powered attack to boot.
2. New England (1-0). Welcome back, Randy Moss.
3. San Diego... oh wait, wrong rankings.
1. D.C. United (14-6-4). Cross-country trip had no ill affects for MLS's top side.
2. Chivas USA (12-6-4). 7-2-3 against Eastern Conference foes. Let me repeat that... SEVEN-TWO-AND-THREE against the "stronger" conference.
3. Houston (12-7-6). Took foot off gas early, but not too early, against a weak RSL side.
4. New England (12-6-6). Poised to take control of Eastern Conference before late collapse.
5. FC Dallas (12-8-3). Denilson scores, Dallas wins; Hoops fans hope that becomes a trend.
6. New York (11-10-3). Inconsistency reigns in New York.
7. Chicago (8-10-5). What's scary is that these guys (Blanco, Wanchope, Conde) are all just learning to play in MLS.
8. Kansas City (9-9-6). Did Davy Arnaud really play against Brazil?
9. Colorado (7-10-7). Bouna Time to Zach Time meant Bad Times for all.
10. Columbus (6-8-10). Playoffs might be fading away.
11. Real Salt Lake (4-12-6). Showed some life after falling behind 4-1.
12. Los Angeles (4-11-5). No Donovan, no Beckham, Pavon didn't start yet scored three times as many goals as previous three league games combined... go figure.
13. Toronto FC (5-13-5). Will this team ever score again?
