Giles Barnes was named to MLSsoccer.com's Team of the Week for the third time after his performance vs. D.C. United on Sunday. Here's what the editors had to say:
Came up big for Houston when they needed it most in a must-win game at D.C. United that saw the Dynamo come away 2-1 victors. Drew the penalty for the opener before scoring the winner to cap off a hard-working performance.

Eddie Robinson joins John Harris of Yahoo! Sports Radio 1560AM for their weekly Dynamo chat in The War Room.
Harris asked Robinson for his take on the Dynamo and their playoff-clinching 2-1 win over D.C. United this weekend. Robinson also gives his thoughts on how the Dynamo can reach another MLS Cup Final, even with a clash against Supporters' Shield winner, the New York Red Bulls, waiting in the next round for the Men in Orange.

D.C. United will be aiming to avoid a history-making campaign when they face a Houston Dynamo side fighting for its playoff life as the Eastern Conference clubs meet Sunday afternoon at RFK Stadium. United need a win to ensure they will not end a season with the fewest victories in MLS history, coming off a 1-0 loss at Sporting Kansas City last week. The Dynamo need a victory if they are to return to the MLS Cup Playoffs after back-to-back MLS Cup Final appearances, after their 3-0 home loss to New York last weekend.
