- Dallas is the first team mathematically eliminated from playoff contention.
- Back-to-back games against Seattle and LA gives Austin a chance to nearly lock down the top spot in the West.
- Even with a week off, LA maintains the second spot. They have a game in hand over the other top five sides.
- The three sides fighting for the third spot are keeping it tight. Seattle returns to the field by virtue of a superior point differential over Houston (+18 v. +6). San Diego sits three back, but plays both Dallas and NOLA in the next four. A match against Houston provides another opportunity to shoot up the ladder.
