Dynamo stay put after in MLSsoccer.com Power Rankings after open weekend

No movement for the Houston Dynamo in this week's MLSsoccer.com Power Rankings after an off weekend, as they stayed in the No. 9 spot.

There were three MLS games on the weekend that shuffled things around the Dynamo – Portland leapfrogged from No. 11 to No. 8 after a home win over Dallas, while Atlanta dropped from No. 7 to No. 10 following a loss at Chicago. Here's what the ranking crew had to say about what's ahead for the Dynamo:


A Gold Cup bummer for Cubo is a blessing in disguise for the Dynamo, assuming Alberth Elis and Romell Quioto get the call for Honduras. After winning just one of their last five, Houston’s next six will tell us whether they’re for real. Four of those are on the road, where they still haven’t won.

The next league match for the Dynamo is on the road against the LA Galaxy this Saturday night (10 p.m. CT | UniMás) before coming home for the Texas Derby against FC Dallas next Friday night at BBVA Compass Stadium (8 p.m. CT | TICKETS).
