BRONCOS QB KYLE ORTON TO BE NAMED AFC OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Denver Broncos quarterback Kyle Orton will be named AFC Offensive Player of the Week for games played during the 10th week (Nov. 11-15) of the 2010 season, the National Football League informed the Broncos on Tuesday.

Orton’s selection as AFC Offensive Player of the Week, which came in recognition of his performance in Denver’s 49-29 win against Kansas City on Sunday, is the second such award of his six-year NFL career. He also received the honor for his play in Week 5 of the 2009 season against New England.

Orton completed 22-of-34 (64.7%) passes for 296 yards with a career-high four touchdowns and no interceptions for a 131.5 passer rating against the Chiefs. Leading an offense that tied for the second-most points in a game (49) in club annals, Orton became the first Bronco in team history to post at least 275 passing yards and four passing touchdowns while not being intercepted or sacked.

The former Purdue University standout threw three touchdowns in the first quarter against the Chiefs that tied a club record for a single quarter.

Orton is Denver’s 46th AFC Offensive Player of the Week winner since the award was initiated by the NFL in 1984.
