The Revolution continues to support one of the best defensive units in the league. Winger DeJuan Jones is ranked near the top. After a disastrous start, Jones has completed 75% of his passes along with 13 interceptions. Not to mention 14 blocks. If these performances continue, the team will make life miserable for opponents.

Once again, the Revolution continues, to receive superior goalkeeping from Matt Turner. Turner has played in 23 games allowing 27 goals. He is responsible for four clean sheets.
