Hey everybody, welcome to the New England Revolution vs. Houston Dynamo live blog! Per usual, we'll be running this thing with the guys from New England Soccer Today. This is the first time we've done a live blog since the new SB Nation United layout, and we're pretty damn excited about it!
The Dynamo have a lot riding on this match. There are playoff implications all over the place, and Houston is in the thick of that race, coming into this round of matches with a very tenuous hold on fifth place. With Columbus breathing down their necks, the Dynamo are going to be looking to take three points out of this match at home. The Revs, meanwhile, would love nothing more than to spoil the playoff hopes of a fierce division rival.
