Coming in hot on the heels of a big win over the LA Galaxy, the New England Revolution supporters almost felt like 3 points were a definite thing from FC Dallas. However, it was not to be. Regardless of looking like the better team for the majority of the game, a last minute poorly setup execution of a set-piece led to 3 points being taken away, and New England leaving their opening road trip with 3 out of a possible 6 points. Still, when thought about, that is not too shabby for a team many thought would be dead last in the league at season's open.
