Opening Odds & Line Movement
Open: -14 +100 at Pinnacle
The Patriots opened up the NFL odds as 14-point favorites and it has stayed the same, and it sounds about right. While their offense, which leads the league in points scored, gets all the credit, New England's defense is also very good. The Patriots are eighth in points allowed and Bill Belichick has had a long time to prepare for Kirk Cousins, who led the charge against the Buccaneers, but he might learn very quickly that the Patriots aren't the Buccaneers.

Injuries
The Redskins will probably be getting WR DeSean Jackson back from a hamstring injury, although he might have to be eased back into the offense. LB Ryan Kerrigan has a broken hand, but he practiced on Monday and he should be suiting up. CB Bashaud Breeland is trying to work his way back from a hamstring injury, while the same goes for C Kory Lichtensteiger, who has an undisclosed ailment.

For the Patriots, G Tre Jackson (knee), T Marcus Cannon (toe) and DE Jabaal Sheard (ankle) were the only ones not at practice on Tuesday. But the Patriots have been dealing with injuries all season, so that shouldn't be a major issue for the team.

 

Trends
Washington has covered the spread in three of seven games this season, including one of three games on the road. The Patriots are 4-1-1 ATS in their last six games, and they're 15-5-2 ATS in their last 22 games at home. The total has been bumped a little from 52 to 52.5, and Washington has gone under in four games this season; the Patriots have gone over in four games.

Since 1981, the Patriots are only 2-5 SU and 1-3-2 ATS in seven games against the Redskins. Washington is also 3-1 SU and ATS in New England; their last trip came way back in 2007, when they were hammered 52-7.
