A key for the Redskins, then, is to pressure Vick into more mistakes.

“We knew Vick threw four picks [against Buffalo], so that’s huge right there,” Orakpo said. “So what we’re going to try to do is take advantage of the turnovers as well, try and get hands on the ball, hopefully get to him and try to create some forced fumbles.”
