Dynamo fall to Rapids
Dynamo fall 2-0
At this point in the game, there is little reason to suspect fans do not know what is on the line this weekend.

The only way for the Dynamo to avoid the wild-card game is if the following happens:
Dynamo coach brings more players to Colorado, preparing for possible scenarios
Kinnear giving himself options for Saturday's match
Saturday will be moving day for the Houston Dynamo, or so they hope.
Houston concludes season vs. Rapids looking to climb Eastern Conference ladder
Saturday's match offers chance for momentum heading into playoffs
Dynamo looking to regain postseason mojo against Rapids
