Engine Mechanical problem
2004 Ford Escape 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic

I was driving home from work and my car started smoking and I could smell something burning. I pulled over and could see oil leaking from under the car. I nursed it to my house and took off the plastic cover from the top of the motor. It look like it could be coming from the valve cover but I dont see anything leaking when I start the car. Oil is splatterd around a little bit but nothing that I could see would let that much oil come out. Any suggestions of what it could be?
