POWER RANKINGS: Week 29 Recap, presented by Texas Health Ben Hogan Sports Medicine

FC Dallas picked up a hard-earned road point in a 0-0 draw with Real Salt Lake and maintained their 5-point lead on the top spot in the Supporters' Shield race, but couldn't jump back into the top spot in several power rankings for MLS Week 29. See what the soccer world has to say about FCD heading into the final month of the year:

By getting a result on Saturday, they have chance to put one hand on the Supporters' Shield this Saturday.

No goals for FC Dallas in a 0-0 draw on the road against Real Salt Lake, but the schedule has to be weighing on the Supporters' Shield leaders. The point will do as they continue their chase.

FC Dallas remained in pole position for the Supporters’ Shield, but can’t put one hand on the silverware just yet after a 0-0 draw against Real Salt Lake. Dallas’s challenge in the coming weeks is twofold: It closes the MLS season by playing a solid LA Galaxy squad (twice) and a Seattle Sounders team desperate for wins, and it must do so while dealing with CONCACAF Champions League dates (including this Wednesday vs. Guatemala’s Suchitepéquez).
