[MLS REWIND: Week 35] Sporting Kansas City moved into the lead for the Supporters' Shield and took over first place in the Eastern Conference with a 2-1 win at Philadelphia that knocked the Union out of playoff contention. Meanwhile, the Portland Timbers clinched first in the Western Conference with a 5-0 win at Chivas USA.

The only team to clinch a playoff berth was Colorado, which was all but mathematically secure before San Jose's 2-1 win over FC Dallas. Montreal's 1-0 loss at Toronto left the door open for Chicago to overtake the Impact with a win or tie against New York and New England and Houston to do the same with wins on Sunday.

New York needs to beat Chicago to win the Supporters' Shield and take first place in the Eastern Conference.
