MLS 2013, Week 11 preview and fixtures: Is it Sunday yet?

USA TODAY Sports

Saturday's matches are ho hum, but Sunday gives us two great contests.

It's tough to sum up entire weekends of MLS action. After all, how do you describe nine matches in a handful of words?

Saturday sucks, Sunday is awesome.

Wow, that was easy.

Chicago Fire vs. Philadelphia Union

Saturday, 1:30 p.m. ET - NBC Sports Network

Yet another piece of evidence that NBC is trying to undermine the league.

Pick: Not America.

Montreal Impact vs. Real Salt Lake

Saturday, 2 p.m. ET - MLS Live

Jesse Marsch broke ankles. Jason Kreis scored goals.

Pick: Ankle breakers.

Seattle Sounders vs. San Jose Earthquakes

Saturday, 4 p.m. ET - MLS Live

Oh hey, you both used to be good.

Pick: 2012.

Vancouver Whitecaps vs. LA Galaxy

Saturday, 7 p.m. ET - MLS Live

The Whitecaps are nearing a year of incompetent soccer, but at least they still have Winger.

Pick: LA, 2-1.

New England Revolution vs. New York Red Bulls

Saturday, 7:30 p.m. ET - MLS Live

Over/under on the Red Bulls' inevitable collapse: 10.5 matches.

Pick: New York, 2-1.

Columbus Crew vs. Colorado Rapids

Saturday, 7:30 p.m. ET - MLS Live

This match may be about Federico Higuain, but in three years every Rapids match will be about Deshorn Brown.

Pick: Columbus, 3-1.

FC Dallas vs. D.C. United

Saturday, 8:30 p.m. ET - MLS Live

D.C. doesn't need the team formerly known as the Burn to go down in flames. They're doing that all on their own.

Pick: Dallas, ∞-0.

Portland Timbers vs. Chivas USA

Sunday, 5 p.m. ET - UniMas

Juan Agudelo will score the winner for Chivas. Then MLS will seize the team. Then they will move to Las Vegas.

Pick: $10 on red.

Houston Dynamo vs. Sporting Kansas City

Sunday, 8 p.m. ET - MLS Live

Someone should tell Dominic Kinnear that he's one more pencil whipping of Peter Vermes from being charged with assault on a helpless being.

Pick: Houston, 3-1.
