Redskins linebacker Brian Orakpo: I lost the game for us
Washington Redskins linebacker Brian Orapko says he felt he lost the game for his team after failing to come up with what could have been a game-changing interception in the team’s 30-20 loss to the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday.
Arizona closed the drive with a field goal making it a two-score game.
“I should have made that pick,” Orapko said to ESPN.com. “It’s just frustrating. I should have made that pick. ... I feel like I lost the game for us.”
The Redskins offense turned the ball over four times in the fourth quarter, leading to 10 Arizona points.

Orapko, who had three total tackles in the game, tried to explain why he did not make the play.
“My hands are tore up, man,” said Orapko, who was playing a sprained left middle finger. “I just couldn’t make that play. I just missed it.”
Washington (1-5) returns home on Sunday to play the Tennessee Titans (2-4).
