How close the race for first place in the East?
Montreal (4th Place) can pass us without needing us to lose or even tie.
Philadelphia (3rd) and Toronto (5th) can tie us without needing us to lose or even tie, and will have tie-breaker advantage.
RB (2nd) can tie us with the help of one NYC tie and will have tie-breaker advantage, and can pass us with one NYCFC loss.
The odd thing is the team in second place (NJRB) is the one that needs the most help to pass us, but the important thing is two bad games could easily drop us to 5th place. Sixth would take a bit more and there’s a decent cushion before dropping out of the playoffs into 7th. But spots 1-5 are really bunched up.
