I'm confused. How does a CRC win help us? Wouldn't that give them 7 points vs our 6 points, leaving us still in 2nd place? Am I adding wrong?

Wouldn't CRC have four points (tie, loss, win)?
A CRC win gives USA the group (on goal differential).
You're right. For some reason, the standings I was looking at were showing them as having 4 points already. Okay. So, with a CRC win, CRC is still knocked out, but COL ends up with 6 & so do we, but our goal differential is better than COL's, so we end up in 1st.
Also, it seems that US would play its quarterfinal in Seattle instead of the Meadowlands, for whatever that's worth.
Yeah, apparently we would lose a day's rest, and have to travel further, but we'd be playing Peru (or possibly Ecuador) instead of Brazil. At the moment, that sounds appealing to me.
