1. Not over yet
After a disastrous 5-0 loss to D.C. United last week, it looked as though the Impact were going to be overtaken in the standings for good this weekend. However, they displayed resolve and were able to get the result they needed to stay alive in the playoff race.
With Toronto and New England being the only two matches remaining, the Impact will have to continue their winning ways if they want to make things interesting on the final day of the season.
But they have proven themselves capable of winning those games and keeping the playoff race alive as it winds into the final few weeks.
The Impact are five points clear of D.C. United, but D.C. have three games in hand. The Impact still need help, but they have given themselves a chance of the postseason.
