MLS Power Rankings: NYCFC boosted by expanded playoff field

When MLS expanded the playoffs to include 18 teams, the league said it wanted to keep teams invested all the way to the end of the season and include as many teams as possible in the postseason hunt. Well, it's worked.

The LA Galaxy were worst team in MLS through 14 games, but they're still in the mix to make the playoffs. Austin FC haven't won since July 15, but they're only four points out of a playoff berth. New York City FC have won just one game away from home this season and they are currently in a postseason position.
