The MLS Team Of Week has four members of the Colorado Rapids, after they took apart FC Dallas 4-0 last Friday. Interestingly, the starting XI from whoscored.com, includes players from only four teams, the Rapids, Red Bulls, Houston Dynamo and LA Galaxy.

It is not often that Player of the Week honors goes to a goalkeeper in a winning cause, but that is the case with Galaxy goalkeeper Jaime Penedo who was brilliant in LA's 1-0 win over the Seattle Sounders at the weekend.

Here are the 10 things we learned from week five of the 2015 Major League Soccer season:

1. Crisis in Philadelphia

What's the worse feeling for Philadelphia Union fans right now? That the Union became only the seventh team in MLS history to go into stoppage time winning and finish it losing, or that there's next to no hope that next weekend and the weekend after will be any better.

FC Dallas arrived in Portland Saturday night with the best record in MLS (3 wins, 1 draw). Dallas has never won in Portland however, and that streak continued as the Timbers felled Dallas 3-1 in an overall fast, physical battle between the Western Conference rivals.

After a relatively lifeless opening 20 minutes, the Timbers jump-started the clash in the 23rd minute when center back Nat Borchers headed in an uncontested corner kick from Jorge Villafana.

Saturday night in Frisco, Texas marked the first meeting between FC Dallas and Seattle Sounders FC since the teams' intense two-legged clash in the 2014 Western Conference Semifinals. The 1-1 aggregate score last November saw Dallas eliminated and Seattle advance via the away goals rule. Last night the teams picked up where they left off, drawing 0-0 in a scrappy match, though the story at kickoff was dominated by the number of key players missing from both sides due to injury or international duty.

Why snow games are a rarity

It's not that playing soccer in the snow is a bad idea, it's that stadiums here aren't built for it.

The Philadelphia Union's match against FC Dallas being postponed due to snow was unfortunate, yet not totally unexpected. It's not the first time that an MLS match has been postponed due to snow, nor was it even the first that the Union played in that had to be held off due to it.

"That was turrible." – Charles Barkley.

The Philadelphia Union were undone by a RED card which had the Union fans seeing RED against the team in RED. I'm sensing a theme here. You know what? In order to make it up to you for using a quote from such a disreputable source such and Sir Charles, let's blatantly riff on someone slightly more reputable, the poet Allen Tate and his sonnet "Red Stains", which you can read first here to get the idea for the below.

Sporting KC Fall in Dallas

Sporting Kansas City's first road trip of the year didn't turn out very well for KC in Dallas tonight as a Blas Perez brace helped to lead Dallas to a 3-1 win over KC. While KC didn't look extremely well in the loss, and probably deserved to lose the game, the scoreline did flatter Dallas a little bit considering Perez and about four other Dallas players were offside on Perez's second goal, and without that goal, the question becomes whether KC would have been pushing forward as much leading to Dallas' third goal on the counter.
