MLS Power Rankings, Week 22: Goalfest 2015

New, 1 comment

Who didn't score goals in this week's MLS Power Rankings? Answer: Not many.

Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

Forty. One. Goals.  That is astounding.  With 39 of those goals scored in one day (Saturday, August 1), MLS teams set a record for number of goals scored in one day.  One quarter of those goals came in the goalfest we all saw at RFK Stadium between our D.C. United (#1 in this week's rankings) and Real Salt Lake (#8), a 6-4 slugfest.  In all, 8 teams scored 3+ goals last week, which is a welcome sight.  Keep scoring goals, teams.  It's really making for some great games to watch, though the league's goalkeepers may feel differently about that.

This week, Seattle just misses out at being the first team this season to occupy the top and bottom spots in the Power Rankings.  Luckily for them, Philly also got torched last weekend.  LA and Vancouver also are starting to make their move up the table.  So, what say you all?  Is United #1 in your book?  What's wrong with Seattle?  Have your say in the comments below!
