MLS Power Rankings, Week 14: Ready, break!

New, 1 comment

The Copa America break has arrived in this week's edition of the Power Rankings.

The hiatus has arrived as the 2016 Copa America Centenario began last Friday in Santa Clara, California with the United States facing off against Colombia. However, before this major tournament of the Americas began, 12 teams went against each other in one last set of league matches before everyone got their vacation on for two weeks. It was a week that featured all weeknight matches, leaving some crowds sparse and wanting of some action.

A few teams were able to create some fireworks, as the Philadelphia Union and Real Salt Lake showed they belong in the "contender" conversation while the Seattle Sounders wore down our beloved D.C. United and pounced at the end to get back into the thick of things. Now, it's time for teams to sit back and get healthy and get ready for the league to resume in a couple weeks. The summer months are here, and with the U.S. Open Cup set to kick into gear (and the Canadian Championship already occurring for the league's teams north of the border), benches will be challenged. Let's see how these players respond.

Now, let's hear what you have to say. What did you think of the Black-and-Red's effort last week? With so many teams idle, who's slotted too high or low? You know the drill...hit those comments and let us know!
