The Washington Redskins have gotten off to an unexpected 3-1 start. Far less surprising is the fact that linebacker Brian Orakpo is once again standing out.
Orakpo has been named the NFC defensive player of the week after the team’s 17-10 win over the Rams.
In the game, Orakpo had five tackles (four solo), two tackles for loss, 2.5 sacks, and three quarterback hits.
Orakpo now has 23 career sacks in two-plus NFL seasons.
