MLS Regular Season
Before the Houston Dynamo had a chance to acclimatize to the thin Denver air, the Colorado Rapids had already put them in a tough position.
COMMERCE CITY, Colo. – For the first two months the Colorado Rapids were scoring at the pace of a DMV line, raising a number of questions. A week can put a lot of notions on hold, however.

Houston Dynamo's Jason Johnson returns to MLS action with lessons learned from Pittsburgh Riverhounds loan
Amid the team’s disappointment at the loss to the San Jose Earthquakes last weekend there was personal satisfaction for Jason Johnson when he logged his first MLS minutes of the season.
The Houston Dynamo have been at their best this season when pushing forward. With Brad Davis leading the charge, the club’s been most dangerous taking the game to the opposing defense.
In the last two games, that has not been happening and with that no goals have been scored. As Houston heads forward, the plan is getting out of their shell and get back to attacking.
Brad Davis shows his set-piece prowess with USMNT, while Servando Carrasco takes over duties for Houston Dynamo
Brad Davis’ performance for the U.S. against Azerbaijan on Tuesday wowed plenty of people - including the man tasked with stepping into the Dynamo captain’s shoes.
“I thought he was phenomenal,” Servando Carrasco told reporters at Houston Sports Park, the day after Davis’ influential display as a second-half substitute in a 2-0 World Cup warm-up victory in San Francisco.
The Houston Dynamo had plenty of chances in their Sunday night showdown with the San Jose Earthquakes – and the misses proved costly in a 3-0 loss at Buck Shaw Stadium.
Twice in the first half the Dynamo were a Jon Busch save away from a goal and lead on the road. The buildups were good, but all that was missing was the finish to cap them off.
That was compounded by mistakes at the back and a foul in the box that led to a penalty kick.
