DC United finally climb into the East playoff zone: Here's how they did it

Before the christening of their new home, Audi Field, and prior to the arrival of Wayne Rooney, D.C. United were languishing at the bottom of the Eastern Conference.

How things have changed.

The four-time MLS Cup champions, who have compiled a 10W-4L-3D record since moving into their new digs, are now officially in the playoff zone after their Week 33 win over FC Dallas.

With three matches remaining in their regular season schedule, D.C. have their postseason destiny in their own hands with an outside chance of moving as high as fourth place if other results go their way.
