John, Jackson named to Team of the Week (Wk. 3)

By Scott Brown

FC Dallas defender George John and midfielder Jackson were named to MLSsoccer.com's Team of the Week for Week 3. Along with second-year center back Matt Hedges (Week 1), they're the only FC Dallas players to make MLSsoccer.com's Team of the Week in the young 2013 season. You can read Nicholas Rosano's explanations of why they made the cut below:

DF: George John (FC Dallas) – Opened the scoring in Dallas' 3-2 victory over in-state rivals Houston, and did well to put out any and all fires that sprung up near him.

MF: Jackson (FC Dallas) – One of the most dangerous men on the field in Dallas' 3-2 win over Houston. His speed and skill caused plenty of issues for Houston, and he had what would have been a Goal of the Week-worthy strike called off by a controversial offside flag.

What do you think? Should any other FC Dallas players have made the cut this week for their performance against the Houston Dynamo?
