The New England Revolution's playoff dreams were officially put to rest following a 2-1 defeat at the hands of the D.C. United on Saturday night.

The Revolution currently sit in eighth place in the Eastern Conference standings with an overall record of 7-15-7 and 28 points in 29 games played. The club is 16 points back of a playoff spot.
