2016 Team of the Week (Wk 17): Dallas jump to 1st thanks to Diaz, Zimmerman

FC Dallas may be the most talented team in MLS. They backed up the talk on Monday night, thrashing Orlando City SC 4-0 at Toyota Stadium.

Mauro Diaz led the way yet again, registering two assists for the second-straight game. Walker Zimmerman chipped in with his usual strong defensive play, and got open on a free kick to put in Dallas' first goal.

The win moved Dallas into first place in the Supporters' Shield standings with 34 points through 19 games. They were also the only team with more than one Team of the Week selection for Week 17.
