Chicago back on top as disappointing draw against lowly D.C. drops Toronto

Herc Gomez recaps the latest round of MLS action, with Chicago's thumping win putting them atop the Power Rankings perch.

The Fire are back on top after Toronto tripped up against the league's worst team in D.C.

1. Chicago Fire (+1): The Fire couldn't overtake TFC for first in the East after their 4-1 destruction of New England, but they did reclaim the No. 1 spot in the Power Rankings.

2. Toronto FC (-1): It took an own goal for the first-place team in the East to salvage a 1-1 draw against the last-place team, D.C. United. MLS!

3. New York City FC (no change): This just in: David Villa is very good. The defending MVP is starting to look like this year's MVP after a hat trick in a 3-2 win over the Red Bulls.

4. Sporting Kansas City (no change): A questionable penalty helped host Sporting to a 1-1 draw with Atlanta in a game the home team probably should have won.

The Fire snapped a three match winless streak vs. New England, with Juninho's long-range effort sealing the win.

5. Atlanta United (+1): Another impressive road result via a 1-1 draw in Kansas City for the expansion team that looks more and more like a playoff contender.

6. FC Dallas (-1): After a 3-1 loss in Philadelphia, Oscar Pareja's men have dropped two in a row and shipped seven goals in the process. Blip or worrying trend?

7. New York Red Bulls (no change): The Red Bulls not only saw their four-game winning streak come to an end with a 3-2 loss in the Bronx, they lost the bragging rights in the battle for New York.

8. Seattle Sounders (+1): The Sounders' counterattack worked to precision in a 4-0 romp at Minnesota United. It's now seven unbeaten for Seattle.

9. Vancouver Whitecaps (+2): The Caps' slow climb up the standings in the West continued with a 2-2 draw in Colorado. Fredy Montero is leading the way.

10. San Jose Earthquakes (+1): Chris Wondolowski's ninth goal of the year helped the Quakes to a 2-1 win over Crew SC and put him one goal away from double-digit goals for an eighth straight season.

11. Portland Timbers (+1): How good is Diego Valeri? The Argentine put in another virtuoso performance in the Timbers' 3-1 win over the Galaxy on Sunday.

12. Houston Dynamo (-4): For the Dynamo, every point on the road is a bonus. A goalless draw in Sandy, Utah -- especially after Alex's sending-off -- represents progress.

13. Columbus Crew SC (-3): Crew SC sit above the red line, but with 10 games left, even a 2-1 loss in San Jose stings just a bit as they push for the playoffs.

Substitute Jacob Peterson scored a stoppage time goal to help Atlanta steal a point at Sporting KC.

14. Philadelphia Union (+4): The Union are a maddening mix of good and bad. Bad, like last week's 3-0 loss to New England. Good, like this week's 3-1 showing against Dallas.

15. LA Galaxy (-1): After a 3-1 loss in Portland, the Sigi Schmid era isn't exactly off to a great start in L.A. Problems in midfield need sorting out.

16. Orlando City SC (-1): Getting Cyle Larin back on the scoresheet is a good thing for Orlando, but losing 2-1 in Montreal won't help the playoff chase.

17. Real Salt Lake (-1): RSL couldn't take advantage of a man-advantage in a goalless home draw against the Dynamo. Goals should come.

18. New England Revolution (-1): The Revs had a chance to build on a pair of wins with a statement against the Fire. Instead, they fell flat in a humbling 4-1 loss in Chicago.

Major League Soccer: CJ Sapong (17') Philadelphia Union 1-0 FC Dallas

19. Montreal Impact (+2): Montreal's season suddenly looks like it has some life with the return of Ignacio Piatti to his irresistible form. The 2-1 win over Orlando is evidence to that.

20. Colorado Rapids (no change): The single point the Rapids earned in a home 2-2 draw with Vancouver wasn't enough to pull them off the bottom of the table in the West.

21. Minnesota United (-2): Expansion life (usually) means the whiplash of inconsistency. A 4-0 loss to the Sounders at home wasn't totally shocking for the Loons.

22. D.C. United (no change): Such is the state of United's season that they played some of their best soccer of the year and still only managed a draw.
