The Playback: Relive most exciting match(es) of Week 21

Here at MLSsoccer.com, we pride ourselves in being able to discern the very best matches and to stand as the voice of reason into which games carry the highest entertainment value for our audience. 

All melodrama aside, you caught us – even we couldn't pick just one.

In a weekend filled with upsets and late drama, the league-leading San Jose Earthquakes staved off a home defeat to the Chicago Fire in the eighth (yes, you read that correctly) minute of stoppage time, as Steven Lenhart played hero yet again (on his own night, no less) with a half-volley equalizer. In a game that saw goalkeepers Sean Johnson and Jon Busch stand on their heads on multiple occasions, the action was nonstop.

And just when we thought that we had seen our fill for the weekend, Sunday's match between Philadelphia and New England rolled around.

After an early strike from Saer Sene put the Revolution in front, slowly but surely the Union fought their way back. Following a slew of controversial calls for both sides and a Freddy Adu penalty kick, a Jack McInerney header in the 90th minute sealed the come-from-behind win and Philadelphia's own rendition of the Lambeau Leap.

Do you agree? Because we certainly couldn't come to a consensus. Check out the extended highlights, and let us know in the poll to the right.
