Sky Blue, FC Kansas City, and Houston all picked up results this past week that could help their playoff chances. Dan and JJ break down who is a real playoff contender from that group along with the Stephanie McCaffrey trade to Chicago.
Also, with the NWSL season two-thirds complete, they discuss who would win the end-of-season awards if the campaign ended right now.
