DENVER (AP) -- Willis McGahee ran for a touchdown and Eric Decker caught two touchdown passes from Kyle Orton to lead the Denver Broncos past the Cincinnati Bengals 24-22 Sunday for John Fox's first win as Denver's coach.

The Broncos (1-1) lost two more players to injury -- giving them nine, including six starters -- but still managed to beat the Bengals (1-1) for the ninth straight time in Denver, where Cincy hasn't won since 1975.

Andy Dalton, who bruised his right wrist and forearm in Cincinnati's win at Cleveland a week earlier, threw for 332 yards for the Bengals, hitting fellow rookie A.J. Green 10 times for 124 yards and Jerome Simpson four times for 136 yards.

But the Broncos' bevy of backups bottled him up on his final two drives as he tried to get into field goal range.
