In a game that could have gone one way or the other for both teams, the Revolution came away from CenturyLink Field in Seattle with a solid point in hand.

We saw a little something different this week from the mind of Bruce Arena. With the re-introduction of Michael Mancienne to the starting 11, Arena started out in a 3-5-2. The three defenders that sat deepest were Jalil Anibaba, Mancienne, and Andrew Farrell, from left to right. Edgar Castillo and Brandon Bye played as the outside midfielders/backs, while Carles Gil, Luis Caicedo, and Wilfried Zahibo ran the middle of the field. Gustavo Bou and Teal Bunbury played as the two forwards. Matt Turner started in goal.
