MLS Standings 2012: New England Revolution Struggling In Eastern Conference

The 2012 MLS season is winding down and the playoffs are right around the corner. As teams across the league look to make one final push, the New England Revolution appear to be out of the running in the Eastern Conference.

As of Monday, the Revolution feature a record of 7-15-8, which places them in ninth place in the East. With just 29 points, there is a decent chance they finish with the second-worst record in MLS, ahead of only Toronto FC.

As for the rest of the Eastern Conference, Sporting Kansas City leads the way with 55 points. The Chicago Fire are in second with 53 points, while the New York Red Bulls and D.C. United are tied for third with 50. The Houston Dynamo hold a one-point lead over the Columbus Crew for the fifth and final playoff spot.

In the West, the San Jose Earthquakes led the league with 18 wins and 60 points. The LA Galaxy and Real Salt Lake are tied for second place with 49 points, while the Seattle Sounders are right behind them with 48 points. The Vancouver Whitecaps hold the fifth and final playoff spot with 38 points, two more than FC Dallas.
