The midweek games didn't help Sporting KC out a whole lot, especially with the Seattle Sounders closest to them winning and jumping into 6th place in the West, making 5-7 much tighter. Tonight there's only one MLS that has little impact on KC for the most part.
What we want to happen - Houston win
While the Dynamo still have two games in hand on KC and sit 11 points behind, their chances of passing the four teams between KC and them is extremely unlikely. Keeping them in the playoff chase as long as possible is also important, especially with match ups against Seattle, LA and Colorado upcoming for Houston. It also keeps the possibility of KC passing NYCFC in the single table should both teams make MLS Cup.
