Chicago Fire extend their unbeaten streak, eye top Power Rankings spot

With Week 16 of MLS done, Herc Gomez recaps the latest edition of the MLS Power Rankings, with Chicago impressing.

The Chicago Fire continue their climb up Jason Davis's MLS Power Rankings. Who else were big movers after the weekend's action?

1. Toronto FC (no change)
TFC's 2-0 win over D.C. United wasn't much of a surprise considering recent form, but getting all three DPs back on the field together was good.

2. Chicago Fire (+2)
A 2-1 win in New England extended the Fire's unbeaten run to eight and further established their credentials as a contender in the East.

3. Sporting Kansas City (no change)
Sporting were held without a goal despite dominating proceedings in Saturday's draw at San Jose, a bad habit they need to break.

4. FC Dallas (-2)
FCD were on their way to a road win in Vancouver when Cristian Techera struck with a well-taken free kick. They'll take the point while feeling like they could have had more.

5. New York City FC (+2)
David Villa's milestone 50th MLS goal helped his team to a 2-1 win over Seattle in driving rain in New York.

6. Atlanta United (no change)
All three DPs scored in the 3-1 win over Columbus, including striker Josef Martinez, who is back from a long injury break. It was his first goal since March 18.

7. Houston Dynamo (+2)
In a moment bound to spark conversations about looming VAR, Houston lost out on its first road win of the year thanks to a late LA goal that forced a 2-2 draw.

8. Orlando City SC (no change)
An emotional week was capped with an emotional 3-3 draw. Orlando held two leads but needed a goal at the very end to get a point.

9. Columbus Crew SC (-4)
Crew SC's defense was more than a step slow in their 3-1 road loss to Atlanta, a problem that has prevailed all year.

From David Villa's historic brace to Bradley Wright-Phillips late heroics, relive all the goals from around MLS in Week 16.

10. New York Red Bulls (+2)
Yes, the Red Bulls needed a man advantage to get full points in a 2-0 win on the road, but they won't care.

11. Portland Timbers (+3)
The Timbers controlled the game and created the chances in the first half against Colorado but couldn't get a crucial second in a 2-1 loss.

12. LA Galaxy (-2)
LA pulled out a 2-2 draw at home against Houston on a controversial late goal. What happened to the Galaxy's home dominance?

13. San Jose Earthquakes (-2)
Give the Quakes credit for a gutsy draw against SKC, minus several key figures. Winning at home is better, but getting anything out of that match will do.

14. Seattle Sounders (+1)
It might be harsh to hold a cross-country performance on a waterlogged field against them, but the Sounders' 2-1 loss to NYCFC won't do a lot to improve confidence.

15. Vancouver Whitecaps (+1)
Vancouver's 1-1 draw at home against FC Dallas showed some promising signs. Alphonso Davies made a difference off the bench, as did Bernie Ibini-Isei in his debut.

16. Philadelphia Union (-3)
Those signs of life the Union showed over a May winning streak are gone. Sunday's 2-0 home loss to the Red Bulls makes it three defeats in a row.

Miguel Almiron scored a stunner and Josef Martinez had a return to remember as Atlanta United dominated Columbus.

17. New England Revolution (no change)
Whatever momentum New England created with a 3-0 win over TFC before the break didn't carry over in a 2-1 loss to Chicago.

18. Colorado Rapids (+3)
Two outings in a row, the Rapids have harnessed the power of Alan Gordon to pull out a win. This time, Gordon scored in the 89th minute to down the Timbers.

19. Montreal Impact (-1)
Montreal extended its unbeaten run to four games, but won't feel good about a 3-3 draw. Despite three goals, the Impact wasted a number of chances.

20. Real Salt Lake (+2)
No team in MLS needed a win coming off the break more than RSL. It took 84 minutes, but Yura Movsisyan's winner vs. Minnesota could prove the biggest of the season.

21. Minnesota United (-1)
The brightest spot in the Loons' 1-0 loss was Bobby Shuttleworth, who faced a barrage in goal. Minnesota's one-step-forward-two-steps-back routine continues.

22. D.C. United (-3)
United fell on the road 2-0 to Toronto FC and went goalless in the process. It has been 665 minutes since D.C. scored from the run of play.
