Toronto, Chicago and SKC continue runs atop MLS Power Rankings

From Jack Harrison's brilliant derby finish to David Accam's hat trick, relive every MLS goal from week 17.

It's mostly "as you were" for the Power Rankings this week. Toronto FC maintained the top spot with a gritty win, while Chicago and Sporting Kansas City kept pace with impressive victories of their own.

1. Toronto FC (no change): Two-day turnaround off a Canadian Cup match proved to be no problem for the best team in MLS in a comprehensive 2-0 win over New England.

2. Chicago Fire (no change): Chicago's 4-0 destruction of Orlando is the latest evidence that the Fire project has produced an MLS contender.

3. Sporting Kansas City (no change): Sporting got the benefit of a horrible goalkeeper gaffe, but that shouldn't take away from the impressive 2-1 road win over the Galaxy.

4. FC Dallas (no change): Will the full return of Mauro Diaz be a big moment in FC Dallas' season? He wasn't at his best in the 1-1 draw against Houston.

5. New York City FC (no change): What a blow struck by the Bronx boys in the burgeoning New York rivalry. The 2-0 win over the Red Bulls left no doubt who is the better team.

6. Atlanta United (no change): Yes, it's the Rapids, but scoring a clean sheet 1-0 win is a good confidence boost for Tata Martino's defense.

7. Houston Dynamo (no change): The Dynamo played toe-to-toe with FC Dallas in a 1-1 draw at BBVA Compass Stadium, showing off their improvement in 2017.

8. Columbus Crew SC (+1): When Crew SC is good, they're good. Case in point, the 4-1 thrashing of Montreal that saw three different players score.

9. Orlando City SC (-1): The Lions' defense was a disaster against Chicago, and simply could not handle the speed of David Accam in a 4-0 loss.

10. New York Red Bulls (no change): Outplayed out at home against their biggest (newest) rivals in a 2-0 loss, the Red Bulls are facing tough questions.

11. Portland Timbers (no change): The Timbers will be kicking themselves for failing to put away the Sounders in a 2-2 draw on Sunday night.

12. San Jose Earthquakes (+1): Beating Real Salt Lake 2-1 at home somehow led to Dom Kinnear's firing in San Jose, something that needs more explanation.

13. LA Galaxy (-1): The Galaxy were shorthanded in the 2-1 loss to Sporting, but that won't make the end of an unbeaten run feel any better.

14. Seattle Sounders (no change): Hello, Clint Dempsey supersub. Staring down a loss in Portland, the American soccer great helped Seattle pull out a big 2-2 draw.

15. Vancouver Whitecaps (no change): The Whitecaps pulled within a point of a playoff spot in the West with a 2-2 road draw in Minnesota.

16. Philadelphia Union (no change): Haris Medunjanin's good sportsmanship was the big story, but Philly needed that 1-0 win over D.C. United to break a three-game losing streak in MLS competition.

17. New England Revolution (no change): The Revs might have thought they could pick off Toronto considering the schedule, but the Reds proved their class in a 2-0 win.

18. Colorado Rapids (no change): The best the Rapids can say is that the 1-0 loss on the road in Atlanta was a moral victory with a makeshift defense in place.

19. Minnesota United (+2): The Loons got goals from a pair of defenders in a comeback 2-2 draw at home against the Whitecaps.

20. Montreal Impact (-1): There's nothing good about a 4-1 drubbing in Columbus for Montreal, whose season is slipping away.

21. Real Salt Lake (-1): After a 2-1 loss in San Jose with a host of youngsters in the lineup, RSL's season is starting to take on a "rebuilding" feel.

22. D.C. United (no change): United scored two at home midweek against Atlanta but couldn't find a goal on the road in a 1-0 loss to Philadelphia.
