With the Cosmos slipping at the start of the Fall season, both MLS teams made up serious ground.

The Red Bulls started with a derby beatdown of the Cosmos, avenging their embarrassment from last year. Some good league results were hampered by a painful USOC loss to Philly. But with a shock win of NYRBII over Chelsea and some smart business in acquiring SWP, it was the best month yet for Metro.

NYCFC were just a step behind. With only one loss on the month and multiple home sellouts, the points on the field came easily, as did a huge boost from signing a legend like Pirlo.

As for the Cosmos: after leading for so long, their swoon hit hard. The derby loss stung, and their NASL unbeaten streak was finally ended at the hands of Jacksonville on the road. It was enough to send them down into second place – but they are far from out.

TABLE AFTER SIX MONTHS:

Red Bulls: 47 points
Cosmos: 46 points
NYCFC: 19 points
