Toronto FC returns to top after rout; Seattle Sounders make a move

From Toronto's big day to NYCFC's jaw-dropping goals at LA, relive all the goals from the 23rd round of MLS action.

Toronto FC climbs back to the top of the Power Rankings thanks to an emphatic home win, while the Chicago Fire slip two spots after a underwhelming display on the road in Ohio. Seattle and Houston make big jumps after home wins.

1. Toronto FC (+1): Back to the top for the Reds, who saw blood in the water and ruthlessly put Portland away 4-1, on Saturday with a late flurry of goals.

2. New York City FC (+1): Patrick Vieira's road warriors did the job with a 2-0 win in Los Angeles, thanks in large part to the stellar work in goal by Sean Johnson.

3. Chicago Fire (-2): The Fire fall down to third in the rankings after a 3-1 road loss in Columbus, marked by a surprising defensive collapse.

4. Seattle Sounders (+4): Once upon a time, the Sounders were floundering below the playoff line. After a 1-0 win over Sporting, they now sit tied for first in the West.

5. Sporting Kansas City (-1): Sporting's defense held up well enough to limit Seattle to one goal. Too bad the attack didn't deliver in the 1-0 road loss.

6. Atlanta United (-1): Atlanta was on a bye this week, heading into the stretch run and on a quest for the playoffs. Not bad for their first official season.

7. New York Red Bulls (no change): Jesse Marsch's squad rebounded off a derby defeat with a 3-1 win over Orlando at Red Bull Arena.

8. Houston Dynamo (+4): The Dynamo's worst-to-first act is in full swing, with Houston now sharing the West lead after a 3-0 win over San Jose.

9. FC Dallas (-3): FCD's power outage continued in a goalless draw against Colorado, though 28 shots speaks to the team's dominance.

10. Columbus Crew SC (+3): Crew SC took down one of the top teams in the East in pretty comfortable fashion. The 3-1 win over the Fire could be a springboard.

11. Vancouver Whitecaps (-2): The Whitecaps missed out on a chance to jump back into a playoff spot out West, thanks to a 1-0 loss at New England.

12. San Jose Earthquakes (-2): The Quakes played directly into Houston's hands by conceding an early goal in a 3-0 loss on the road.

13. Portland Timbers (-2): It took nearly 70 minutes, but the Timbers were clearly outclassed against Toronto FC in a 4-1 loss in Canada.

14. Real Salt Lake (+3): RSL handled the strangeness of the rain delay in D.C. and benefited from a United error to score a 1-0 win on the road.

15. Montreal Impact (+4): The Impact tacked on two injury time goals that dressed up a 3-0 win in Philadelphia, but all that matters is the three points earned.

16. New England Revolution (+2): The Revs need wins and certainly can't afford to drop points at home. A 1-0 win over the 'Caps at Gillette will do.

17. Philadelphia Union (-3): Beat a top Western team last week, fall to one of the East's also-rans, Montreal, 3-0 in Chester. That's the Union's season in a nutshell.

18. Orlando City SC (-2): The Lions' up-and-down season was down again in a 3-1 loss to the Red Bulls that included an odd sending off for Kaka.

19. LA Galaxy (-4): The home woes continue for L.A. under Sigi Schmid in a 2-0 loss to NYCFC. Whatever ails the Galaxy doesn't look easy to fix.

20. Colorado Rapids (no change): The Rapids played their style of soccer and got a hero's effort from Tim Howard to earn a clean sheet and a point on the road in Dallas.

21. Minnesota United (no change): A week off for the Loons. who could use a chance to regroup and try to salvage something from their season.

22. D.C. United (no change): It took two days, but United still managed to fall at home, 1-0, to RSL despite the reinforcements in the midfield.
