The Revolution midfielder could play this weekend.

Kelyn Rowe missed two months of action last season while recovering from a knee sprain. So when the midfielder picked up a knee injury in training two weeks ago, many fans feared the worst.

But this time, Rowe sustained an injury to his left knee—not the right knee he injured eight months ago.

The match had so much action...and yet so few goals in the second half because reasons, Zack Steffan saves, and Jalil Anibaba blocks.

In a day with several lopsided scorelines in MLS, the New England Revolution and Columbus Crew SC surely seemed like their match was going to enter high scoring territory after a playing out the first half to a 2-2 draw.

Revs attackers have skills.

Things weren't going all that well for the New England Revolution in the first half. Columbus Crew SC had scored two goals including one in the 43rd minute to go ahead 2-1 as the match entered first half stoppage time.

Then Claude Dielna attacked a clearance and headed the ball forward where Juan Agudelo did his second juggling act of the game:

Check that @JuanAgudelo footwork.

Who will prevail in possibly the last New England trip to Columbus?

The Revs travel to the heart of Ohio to take on a Crew SC side that's lost three straight. New England is also coming off their second loss of the season.

Both the Crew and Revs are off to solid starts in the East, can New England take advantage of a recent Columbus losing streak to get a road result?

In the past few years, both the New England Revolution and Columbus Crew have been on the verge of a special season and missed the playoffs.

The Revs were MLS Cup runners up in 2014 with the Crew taking that honor the following year in 2015, and with the two teams meeting in a testy playoff series in ‘14 I always wondered if these two teams had stayed more consistent in the standings if a rivalry (the Kei Kamara Derby?

New England has dropped their last four regular season matches in Ohio.

Most folks know Columbus, Ohio, as home to The Ohio State University. New England Revolution supporters likely associate the capital of Ohio with fond memories of recent playoff-related success. To wit, entering Decision Day 2013, the Revs marched into then-Crew Stadium needing nothing short of a full three points to erase a four-year playoff drought.

Could the 23-year-old join a young crop of U.S. National Team keepers?

During his first two MLS seasons, Revolution goalkeeper Matt Turner spent more time traveling down I-95 than he did playing at Gillette Stadium.

An undrafted signee in 2016, Turner joined a Revolution side with proven goalkeepers Bobby Shuttleworth and Brad Knighton already on its roster.

The midfielder deserves to finish his career on the pitch, not the bench

Enough is enough.

The melodrama involving Lee Nguyen and The New England Revolution has gone on long enough and must end. It would be best for both the team and the player to move him immediately to a place where he is appreciated and will get steady playing time.

The Revs haven't beaten FC Dallas since Rajko Lekic was scoring goals for the club, can New England continue their strong start today?

True story, the last time the New England Revolution beat FC Dallas was back in 2011. This game also happens to be my first ever Revs game and it took place at a time when New England was, well, bad.

New England has lost their last seven matches vs FCD, including two at home.

The last time New England defeated FC Dallas, there was a guy on the Revs' bench who, during his MLS debut one month earlier, had scored his professional goal. Although he didn't take the pitch against the team originally known as the Dallas Tornado, the Revs' first-ever Homegrown player — Diego Fagundez — has, as they say, come a long way.
