New England 2016 Season Summary:
Opened the season away at Houston and played poorly on defense, settling for a draw. Hosted DC in their season opener but the attack came up dry, 0-0 draw. Went to Philly and poor play from Watson, including a red card resulted in a 3-0 loss. Played away at NYC and earned a solid road point. Finally, 3 points at the expense of the Red Bulls in a not so stellar performance otherwise.
