D.C. United continues to take on, and usually defeat, all challengers that have entered the club’s path.

The Columbus Crew served as D.C. United’s latest victim, as the reigning Eastern Conference champions captured a 2-0 victory to earn SBI MLS Team of the Week.

Unbeaten in six straight with four victories, D.C. United put on yet another clinical performance on Saturday in dispatching a fellow Eastern Conference contender. Once again, D.C proved impossible to break down, while the returning Fabian Espindola provided on the other end of the field by contributing a goal and an assist.

D.C. United’s defeat over a red-hot crew team was enough to earn honors as SBI MLS Team of the Week, beating out the Seattle Sounders and FC Dallas for this week’s honors.

What did you think of D.C. United’s performance? Which team stood out to you this past weekend?

Share your thoughts below.


  1. Revs. We have the same record as DC (admittedly with one more game played) but we’ve won our games pretty. With however many different goal scorers. We won again this week against the last undefeated team.

    • This is only the second week in a row that NE has been looked over for TOTW. I think you have to wait until three for it to be something to complain about. (I agree with you by the way. They have been an absolute joy to watch this season). How can they not even get an honorable mention?

    • The Revs may at some point end up being the top team in the East. But at this point, DCU has been the better side. If we ignore DCU and NER for a moment, you’d probably say that the best teams in MLS are:
      –Seattle (NER lost badly 3-0, DCU hasn’t played))
      –Vancouver (DCU won at Vancouver)
      –NYRB (DCU lost 2-0, NER beat 2-1)
      –Columbus (DCU just best, NER drew)
      –Dallas (neither team has played)

      If we were to come up with a list of the bottom-feeders in the league, you’d have: Montreal, Philly, Colorado, NYC, and RSL. DCU has played only Montreal while NER have played all of them with 10 of their 17 points come off of these teams.

    • “The same record, admittedly with one more game played”. Well then it’s not the same record is it? Not in win percentage. Not in points per game. DC will catch the revs in games played mid week next week, we will see then.
