2016 Team of the Week (Wk 2): New-look Houston Dynamo lead the way

After losing all three games to their bitter rivals in 2015, the Houston Dynamo knew they needed to change things up in 2016.

On Saturday night they completely flipped the script on FC Dallas, beating up on their rivals 5-0 at BBVA Compass Stadium.

Offseason acquisition Andrew Wenger led the way with a goal and two assists, matching his totals from the entire 2015 season. DaMarcus Beasley was his usual sturdy self at left back, helping Houston earn a clean sheet against Oscar Pareja's team.
