The Houston Dynamo will once again look to make MLS history when they put their long home undefeated record on the line, facing the Colorado Rapids on Sunday afternoon at BBVA Compass Stadium. The Dynamo have a perfect record at home this year, but are coming off their first road point, gained in a 1-1 draw at Toronto FC last weekend. The Rapids saw their brief two-game winning streak put to an end last time out, in a home loss to Seattle Sounders FC.
