The New England Revolution have made the trip down I-95 to the nation's capital to take on close rivals D.C. United in an all-Eastern Conference clash. Head coach Jay Heaps has run out a fairly predictable lineup with just one notable absence in his quest for victory.
Clyde Simms comes in for Scott Caldwell, which indicates that Heaps must want to go with experience. Still, Caldwell has hardly put a foot wrong all season, and it certainly seemed as though he'd won the job fair and square. Simms' game is a little less forward-facing than Caldwell's, which could explain the move as well since the Revs are on the road.
