History is within reach for the New England Revolution.

Amid a torrid 2021 campaign that has the Revs nearing their first-ever Supporters' Shield, Bruce Arena's men are also closing in on another milestone: the league's single-season MLS points record, which was set by LAFC in 2019, when the Black & Gold finished with 72 points.

After earning a tie against Orlando City SC on October 24, the Revs are now just three points shy of breaking that mark. The chase continues Wednesday, October 27 when New England hosts playoff-bound Colorado Rapids at 7 pm ET on MLS LIVE.

As New England close in on that lofty mark, here's a full breakdown of where they stand on the all-time list, and the remaining schedule they'll have to navigate to get it done.
