In the 90’s, the Dallas Cowboys earned the title of “America’s Team”. Behind an offense loaded with legends like Troy Aikman, Michael Irvin, Larry Allen and Emmitt Smith, the Cowboys not only won multiple Super Bowls, but also the hearts of millions of football fans across the nation. However, in more recent years, the Cowboys haven’t done much to keep that famous moniker. The disdain for Dallas seems to run more rampant than the love. The headlines that the Cowboys grab aren’t fun or exciting. They’re scandalous or boring. The stories in the news about the Cowboys are about players in legal trouble or their crazy and dislikable old owner or contract holdouts. Those aren’t fun, they’re not endearing and it certainly doesn’t make them lovable in the eyes of those across the nation. The Cowboys reign as “America’s Team” is over. It’s time for a new team to step into the role that the Cowboys have claimed for so many years: the Cleveland Browns.

The Revolution and about 500 supporters made the journey to Harrison, as the team looked ready to face off against their longtime rivals, the New York (New Jersey) Red Bulls. The Revs, coming off of a back-and-forth goalfest in Seattle that saw them take a point with them, were hoping to move into 5th place with a win. On the other end of the pitch, the Red Bulls had been fresh off of a 4-2 beatdown at the hands of league leaders LAFC, and aimed to not only deny the Revs their points, but hold onto sole possession of 5th place, with Bruce Arena’s squad nipping at their heels.
