So Thierry Henry and Rafa Marquez didn't feel like making it up to Foxboro. We certainly won't hold that over their heads. After all, no one wants to be part of a team that continues a winless streak on a rivals home pitch.

Following three straight draws, including two stoppage time equalizers, it was about time for the team to get back on track if they truly do aspire to make it to the playoffs. While the New England Revolution did not hold possession over New York Red Bulls, they did have the better of the chances. With a debut from their new designated player, Jerry Bengtson, a stellar performance from Lee Nguyen and a better than given credit for game by Saer Sene, New England drove up the Eastern Conference table and back into the playoff conversation.

The Match in Tweets is ready for the joys of a five game unbeaten streak. If you're a Revolution supporter and want to be included in this feature, make sure you tag your match day tweets with #Revs (or #NETID) or follow @MindOfAbram on Twitter.
