The Washington Redskins travel up to Foxborough to play the New England Patriots this weekend and everyone is expecting this to be pretty much a blowout. Odds makers have the Patriots listed as a 16.5 point favorite. And the way the Patriots have been playing, as of late, it is understandable why everyone thinks they could walk away with this one.

A career NFL scout, Doug Kretz spent 19 seasons with the Seattle Seahawks, one each with the Pittsburgh Steelers and Washington Redskins and three with the Cleveland Browns. A soccer player in college at Seattle Pacific University, Kretz spent four years as football and soccer coach at Newport High School in Bellevue, Wash., before joining the Seahawks.
