A match with important implications for the Eastern Conference playoff picture kicks off the week when the Houston
Dynamo play host to the New England Revolution on Thursday evening at BBVA Compass Stadium. The Dynamo saw their playoff hopes dashed last weekend in a 3-1 home loss to D.C. United. But the Revolution still have a home berth in the conference semifinals on their radar, after securing their spot in the MLS Cup Playoffs with a 2-2 draw at the Montréal Impact on Saturday afternoon.
