Jermaine Jones has proven to be the missing link for the New England Revolution.

The visiting Revs topped Sporting Kansas City, 3-2, at Sporting Park last Friday due to Jones' 85th minute game-winner, as the Revs bounced back to pickup their sixth victory in seven games.

You might think that, with a sizeable statistical advantage (63% to the Revs' 37% ball possession, 7 corners to the Revs 2, and so on), Sporting Kansas City should have won Friday's match fairly easily. But the numbers aloneweren't enough for the hosts to come away with three points.

Jermaine Jones may have gotten the glory and done the nationally-televised postgame interview for scoring the decider in Friday's 3-2 win over Sporting Kansas City, but according to Jay Heaps, the Revolution's success rested heavily on a critical second half substitution.

But in reality,it was a chippy game that put the referee Ismail Elfath to work and was, more or less, evenly played throughout.

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.

The Revolution put in a good effort on Saturday, but the Crew was simplythe better team in both halves, and deserved the 1-0 victory. In addition, the facts that they were playing at home (big professional axiom: "win at home") and were more desperate than the Revs for a win (Crew was fifth in the standings, the Revs third) had to give them more of a sense of urgency.
