[MLS PREVIEW: Week 25] Draft picks Dillon Powers and Deshorn Brown, defenders Chris Klute and Shane O'Neill and goalie Clint Irwin -- who had played a combined two MLS games before this season -- have gotten the Colorado Rapids into playoff contention. Is it now time for Colorado's new imports to take over? Panamanian Gabriel Torres and Vicente Sanchez could make their first appearances on Saturday when the Rapids host the Vancouver Whitecaps in a critical Western Conference showdown.

Colorado and Vancouver enter the weekend tied for second place in the Western Conference, but only three points separate the four teams below them.

The Rapids hold the longest active unbeaten streak in the league at eight games. They're also the only team in the league with two unbeaten streaks of six games or more in 2013.

Longest Unbeaten Streaks:
15 Portland (7-0-8)
9 FC Dallas (6-0-3)
8 Real Salt Lake (6-0-2)

7 New York (5-0-2)
6 Vancouver (5-0-1)
6 Chicago (4-0-2)
6 Seattle (4-0-2)
