Final International Break and Be Kind to Each Other Edition

MLS: New York Red Bulls at Toronto FC Kevin Sousa-USA TODAY Sports

Its already Friday?!?! There was a game on Tuesday?!?! Today has been a crazy week both in and out of the league. And yet again, sports takes a backseat to real world events. Due to that, this weeks rankings will be a little lighter than normal. We will only have rankings, score, and movement. Other features will resume next week.


COMPONENTS OF SFPI:

PREDICTIONS

Last Week the SFPI went 6-13 (31.57%) for its worst week in months and brings season total to 127-166 (43.34%)

Again these rankings did not include Minnesota at Atlanta, and despite Minnesota's last second victory I will include the prediction for the sake of honesty (plus anyone who said they expected Minnesota to win at Atlanta is lying to you. Lighter slate of games this week due to international break, but a few teams still need to make up their games in hand

Minnesota at Atlanta: ATLANTA

Vancouver at New York RB: VANCOUVER

Kansas City at Minnesota: KANSAS CITY

Dallas at Colorado: DALLAS

Timbers Rooting interest

Minnesota at Atlanta: MINNESOTA why not? (and because they did, lol)

Vancouver at New York RB: NEW YORK. for Portland to have any chance at Conference title they need Vancouver to not win any more games.

Kansas City at Minnesota: MINNESOTA. Just as they need Vancouver to drop points, need SKC to do the same to get a bye

Dallas at Colorado: COLORADO. Will make it so Dallas wont be able to catch Portland assuming the Timbers can get even 1 more point
