In general, win at home and draw on the road.

Perhaps figure on slightly less than that versus the other two heavyweights, Mexico and Costa Rica.

The US got a rough early schedule, with 2 of their 3 hardest games as the first two, and didn't play well, dropping both games (probably should've been expected to escape with 1 or 2 points -- draw vs Mexico at home and with CRC on the road, perhaps losing the latter, but 0 was a disappointment, especially getting throttled in the second match). But since the match at Azteca had to be pencilled in as a loss, this recoups one of those dropped points and puts the US right back into the status quo.
