Kyle Orton Named AFC Offensive Player of the Week

October 13, 2009

Picture 5Denver Broncos quarterback Kyle Orton will be named AFC Offensive Player of the Week for his performance against the New England Patriots according to the NFL. 

The quarterback was recognized by the NFL after completing 35-of-48 passes for 330 yards with two touchdowns and one interception for a 96.7 rating in Denver’s 20-17. He led two touchdown drives of at least 10 plays and 90 yards against the Patriots, including a 12-play, 98-yard drive late in the fourth quarter that tied the game and eventually forced overtime where he also led a key drive for a field goal.

This would be his first ever award of this type in his 5 year long career. Orton’s 35 completions were a career high and tied for the third-highest single-game total in the NFL this year.

We are really glad to see that Orton is getting recognized for his great play. We also encourage you to vote for him for the FedEx Air Player of the Week. To find out more about that award nomination you can click here
