Orton wary of Vikes blitz packages

Kyle Orton and the rest of the Bills offense is looking to get back on track Sunday and although the Vikings are just 20th against the run and 20th in points allowed, Buffalo’s veteran quarterback is very familiar with Minnesota head coach Mike Zimmer’s blitz schemes from his days as defensive coordinator with Dallas and Cincinnati.

“Good defense, fast linebackers, fast secondary; attacking style defense,” said Orton. “Obviously third down anytime you play Coach Zimmer, third down is going to be an issue with their blitz package. We’re going to have to do a good job on early downs. I think that’s the thing that looking back when we do well on first and second down and kept ourselves in good third downs, we’ve executed and gone down and scored so I think that’s really a focus.”

The Vikings have 14 sacks on the season.
