The Revs got out to a 3-0 deficit against Toronto early, and never were able to come back from it. Though the effort was there, along with a lack of luck, they were unable to get the job done in a late comeback attempt. Turner and Buchanan were missed greatly, and ultimately cost New England all three points.

The Revs were not themselves in the first half without two of their best four players. The second half showed more of what’s to come and their real potential.
There’s nothing to worry about yet, as no Eastern Conference team has come close to passing the Revs, despite three games without a win. Orlando City lost 3-1 to Chicago Fire on the night, solidifying first place. The Revs get ten days off before visiting the Mercedes-Benz Stadium and Atlanta United on ESPN.
