After a lengthy international break with a few random matches sprinkled in, the latest edition of the Power Rankings is here to break down the latest MLS action.
As a reminder, the rankings use an all new model I’ve obnoxiously titled the Overall Performance Index. Click here for a full breakdown of how the model works.
Week 15 Power Rankings
|1||New York City FC||20.09||—|
|3||New York Red Bulls||14.78||—|
|10||Real Salt Lake||7.61||—|
|12||New England Revolution||6.95||—|
|17||Orlando City SC||3.73||+2|
|24||Inter Miami CF||-2.90||-1|
|26||San Jose Earthquakes||-3.29||-3|
Hardly any movement in the top 10. CF Montréal and LA Galaxy switch places in 8th and 9th, but the top otherwise keep their spots, despite some significant changes in score. After a home loss to San Jose Earthquakes and a loss to Sporting KC, Nashville SC‘s score has dropped by almost half a point, and they’re in real danger of dropping out of the top 10.
NYCFC and LAFC keep climbing, with New York’s 20.09 score setting the record for the highest score yet this year. Outside the top 10, Seattle Sounders keep climbing, up to 15th place after a win over Vancouver and draw against LAFC. Charlotte FC are the other big climber, moving up five spots beating New York Red Bulls and drawing on the road against Columbus Crew. Maybe things aren’t quite as bad in Charlotte as I suggested last time out…
