The Sounders aren't dead yet (it only seems that way) and have another opportunity to clinch a spot in the MLS Cup playoffs Saturday when they tangle with FC Dallas in a rare morning match (11:30 a.m., PT) in Frisco, TX. A win would get the Sounders, losers of three in a row, into the postseason, and a draw plus favorable results from Western Conference opponents would also do the trick.
