Colorado Rapids September preview

It could hardly get worse, could it? Fortunately, the Rapids have only a scant few games in September.

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

It's kind of a bad sign when you can say that your recent 0-6-0 month was the first such month since that last one you had only two years prior, but whatever. This month we don't have to go through six matches; there are only four potential losses to deal with!

9/5 @ LA Galaxy - Ooh, maybe the Rapids can score three and lose again! I see this as either a revenge-match for the Rapids or a match that they're going to enter demoralized and get stomped. After losing every match in August, my money's not on the first one.
BW Prediction: 3-1 Galaxy

9/13 vs. Portland Timbers - Well, the Rapids are usually good against the Timbers at home. I'll pick this right now as the match where the losing streak comes to an end.
BW Prediction: 2-1 Rapids

9/19 @ Real Salt Lake - After getting embarrassed in the Rocky Mountain Cup, the Rapids are probably going to come out with thoughts of salvaging at least something against their Rivals, a'la 2012. Maybe we'll see a draw out of this one.
BW Prediction: 1-1 Draw

9/27 vs. San Jose Earthquakes - NO NOT THIS AGAIN I THOUGHT WE WERE DONE WITH THEM
BW Prediction: 1-0 Quakes
