Orakpo contributed 1.5 sacks and two tackles (one solo) during Saturday's 22-21 win over Kansas City in the wild-card round. Orakpo picked a good time to tie his season high in sacks. The 31-year-old pass rusher still has plenty of gas left in the tank, as his 7.0 sacks in the regular season represented his third consecutive campaign with at least that many since joining the Titans.
Orakpo contributed four tackles (two solo) and 1.5 sacks in Sunday's 20-16 win over the Colts. Indianapolis' Jacoby Brissett came in as the most-sacked quarterback in the league, and Orakpo was happy to add to that total. The veteran pass rusher is up to 4.0 sacks this season, but has almost no chance of matching last year's 10.5.
Orakpo sustained a minor leg injury in Thursday's 40-17 loss to the Steelers, freelance sports writer John Glennon reports. Orakpo played 53 of 76 defensive snaps and notched two solo tackles, but head coach Mike Mularkey indicated the injury wasn't serious. The 31-year-old will have also some extra recovery time before the Week 12 matchup with the Colts due to the Thursday night game this week.
Orakpo recorded a sack in Sunday's victory over the Bengals. Orakpo made his only tackle of the day count, as he forced opposing quarterback Andy Dalton to fumble following a sack early in the second quarter. The veteran saw 41 snaps (80.0 percent) in the contest.
Orakpo recorded a sack and four tackles while hitting the quarterback twice overall in Sunday's 37-16 win at Jacksonville. Orakpo and fellow outside linebacker Derrick Morgan were both able to get to quarterback Blake Bortles in this one. The duo provides a potent pass rush when both are healthy.
