Washington Redskins star Brian Orakpo calls for hits on quarterbacks in the NFL to be reviewable after disagreeing with a decision on the weekend.

Washington Redskins linebacker Brian Orakpo has called for the NFL to add hits on the quarterback to the list of plays that can be reviewed.

Redskins star Jarvis Jenkins was flagged for roughing the passer in Sunday's 17-6 loss to the Houston Texans, while their opponents also received the same penalty for a hit on Robert Griffin III.

"I understand what the league is trying to do, protect the quarterbacks, clean up the big hits. But I don't know, maybe we should start reviewing those type of plays because those are real momentum-type plays," Orakpo said, ESPN reports.

Jenkins revealed after the game that he would like to send the tape to the NFL in order to find out what he did wrong and how he can avoid being flagged in the future.
