The Columbus Crew is still atop the Supporters' Shield standings despite suffering a 1-0 loss to NYCFC on Monday in Harrison, N.J.
Past results, i.e. five wins in six games, including a 3-0 win over Chicago Fire FC last Thursday, lifted the Crew back to No. 2 in the most recent MLSsoccer.com Power Rankings.

Previous ranking: 4th
"Had the Crew not suffered a 1-0 loss Monday night against NYCFC, would they have occupied first place? Entirely possible, since Caleb Porter’s team still holds first place in the Supporters’ Shield standings."
