There has been a lot going on in the Eastern Conference lately, and all of it means a lot to the Philadelphia Union's playoff chances.

With just nine games left in the 2014 MLS regular season, the Philadelphia Union are sitting in seventh place and on the outside looking in. But they have been one of the hottest teams in MLS (as evidenced by their eighth place ranking out of the top 100 teams in the United States and Canada) and are just three points behind the Columbus Crew for the fifth and final playoff spot - and perhaps most importantly, they have a game in hand on the Crew.

The Revs won fairly easily, 2-1, against the Fire Sunday night, in a game marked by a 62.8 % to 37.2% New England ball-possession advantage and some fine offensive combinations. As the 2:1 possession statistic suggests, the Revs passing game was effective, especially during the first ten minutes of the game, during the last ten minutes of the first half, and from the time of Charlie Davies' winning goal to the end of the contest.
