Orton leads Broncos past Bills, 24-10

Kyle Orton, who has rendered the quarterback drama in Denver a question of who will be his backup, led the Broncos on two touchdown drives in a 24-10 victory over the Buffalo Bills on Saturday night.

Brady Quinn leapfrogged Tim Tebow as the No. 2 quarterback for this game and had a mostly solid performance, throwing a touchdown pass but also an interception.

Tebow's first drive went 6 yards and ended in a sack and his second one ended in a punt.

The game was marred by an injury to Bills running back Johnny White, who was strapped to a body board and carted off the field after his head was driven into the grass on a clean tackle by linebacker Mario Haggan in the third quarter. White was taken to a hospital via ambulance. There was no word on his condition.

    Orton is the man! Don't listen to the media, they'll talk you into slapping your momma; you all know how that would end. At the end of the day they are all counting their MILLIONS.

    Hopefully fans can move on from the misplaced Tebow mania and support our real QB, Orton. I just want to say through it all, Orton has handled himself very professionally in the face of some pretty bad treatment from Denver fans, management and media.

    I'm a fan of Tebow as a person and as a player but I think he's proven time and again that he's just not ready to be more than 3rd string QB. Maybe someday, but not now. When Orton initially came on the scene I was not a big fan (having been a huge Cutler fan)but I would hate to see him go. He's really brought the team some amazing talent and Brady Quinn has showed he definitely has the goods on the field to play a strong second to Orton. It was fantastic to watch them get this pre-season win and I'm getting more excited about Fox's abilities as a coach. I can't wait to see what they bring to the field this year!

    I like how all media tunes have changed, now that we have won a preseason game- to praise Kyle. It's horrible that so many Broncos "fans" actually put so much faith into Tebow for nothing, and most times when Kyle comes on the field he gets booed. To me, there never needed to be this "quarterback controversy", because their wasn't one. Kyle Orton is clearly a better, more seasoned QB, and Quinn (in his 5th season) is now showing up way more than Tebow ever can. Being overrated has nothing to do with playing good football. Go #8!!!!!

    Tebow is so over rated it's pathetic! Everyone is just oh so concerned about him...how about focusing on the starter we have, ORTON! GO KYLE!!!

    With his autobiography(at 23 years old!), and his bible thumping rants, Tebow puts himself up for close examination and even criticism. Nice to see Quinn bring him down a peg. Better for the Broncos that they relegate Sir Tim to a solid #3, and then seek to trade him when possible.

    Well I must say, Denver is looking better each week. Getting rid of McDaniels was the best thing they ever did. Orton and Quinn did look great and I am proud of that! And the defense, bravo tonight as well. While there is a lot of work to do here, I must say good job Fox on the work you have done so far.
