The Revs resumed their place at or near the top of the Eastern Conference standings, finishing second after another consistent season under Nicol, the longest-tenured coach in MLS. Midyear, the team won its first-ever cup championship, winning the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup behind a 3-2 victory at FC Dallas on Oct. 3 as rookie Wells Thompson scored the game-winner in the second half. The team uncharacteristically entered the playoffs winless in their final three regular-season matches, but once again reached the MLS Cup championship match, defeating the New York Red Bulls in the Eastern Conference Semifinal Series (1-0 on aggregate) and Chicago, 1-0 in the Revs' record-setting sixth consecutive Eastern Conference Championship match. At MLS Cup 2007, New England and the Houston Dynamo played the first-ever rematch of the previous year's final with the Dynamo repeating the 2006 result and taking a 2-1 victory at RFK Stadium in Washington. Taylor Twellman scored his league-leading third playoff goal in the first half, but Houston struck twice in the second to repeat as champions.
