Vako leads resurgent San Jose Earthquakes up standings | Audi Player Index

It was a rough start to the 2019 season for Valeri "Vako" Qazaishvilli and the San Jose Earthquakes, with the Quakes beginning with four straight losses and a -12 goal differential in that span.

Matt Doyle and Andrew Wiebe take a peak under the hood, and analyze what has Vako and the Quakes firing on all cylinders.
