Orton playing quite well (obviously)

K. Orton has accomplished something this season that only Kurt Warner had done (AP). Posted by Josh Katzowitz

With yet another 300-plus yard passing performance today, Broncos QB Kyle Orton has placed himself in some pretty exclusive company. Well, it’s a company of one, but still.

Orton – who’s thrown for 295, 307, 476 and 341 yards in the first four games of the season, respectively – has accumulated 1,419 yards on the year. That's the most anybody has ever thrown in the first quarter of a season besides Kurt Warner, who had 1,557 yards in 2000.

(In his first six games that year, it should be noted, Warner recorded 2,260 passing yards, so that’s something for which Orton can shoot).

Today, Orton completed 35 of 50 passes, as the Broncos outlasted the Titans 26-20 to improve Denver’s record to 2-2.

As our own Will Brinson astutely pointed out on our Twitter account, “if the Chargers weren't pantsing the Cardinals, Philip Rivers might be ahead of Kyle Orton” (I prefer the term “shanking,” but you already knew that).

Coming into the game, Rivers had passed for 1,087 yards, and today, he recorded 249 yards. Of course, the Chargers destroyed the Cardinals, so there was no need to throw the ball for much of the game.
