Philippe Senderos and Alberth Elis both earned spots in the weekly eleven, and Wilmer Cabrera was named the top coach by the MLSsoccer.com editorial staff. The three Dynamo representatives tied Columbus Crew SC's three players named to this week's team.
Senderos scored a goal, provided a secondary assist, and lead a shutout performance against one of last year's most potent attacks in an impressive Opening Day performance. Elis assisted the opening goal of the day and helped set up the third as he terrorized the Atlanta defense all afternoon.
