FOXBOROUGH -- It could be a little warmer, but after watching the United States Men's National Team beat Costa Rica, 1-0, in a blizzard Friday night, the weather at Gillette Stadium for this afternoon's season opener is near-perfect.

The sun is shining, the wind isn't too bad (yet), and the parking lots are full of happy tailgaters.

The Revs (1-1-0) are hosting Sporting KC (1-1-1) as they open their home portion of the 2013 schedule against former midfielder, Benny Felihaber.

The Revolution are without Jerry Bengtson, who has their only goal of the season. Bengtson is currently with Honduras playing with the national team during World Cup qualifiers.

The Revs are still going with their 4-3-2-1 starting lineup though, this time with Chad Barrett, who makes his first start of the season. The lineup:

Forward: Chad Barrett

Attacking midfielders: Lee Nguyen, Juan Toja, Kelyn Rowe

Defensive midfielders: Clyde Simms (C), Scott Caldwell

Defenders: Kevin Allston, Jose Goncalves, A.J. Soares, Andrew Farrell

Goalkeeper: Matt Reis

Sporting KC lineup:

Forwards: Claudio Bieler

Midfielders: C.J. Sapong, Paulo Nagamura, Oriol Rosell, Benny Felihaber, Soony Saad

Defenders: Ike Opara, Aurelien Collin, Mechack Jerome, Seth Sinovic

Goalkeeper: Jimmy Nielsen (C)
