Lions could give Kyle Orton a rude welcome
by Chris Towers |

Bills quarterback Kyle Orton won't exactly be getting the softest landing when he makes his first start in Week 5, with the Lions on the schedule.

Detroit's defense has done an excellent job against quarterbacks this season, allowing just 12.5 Fantasy points per game, the third-lowest mark in the league. Opposing passers have yet to register a multiple touchdown game against the Lions, with only Cam Newton notching better than 12 Fantasy points against them.

The Lions feature one of the league's best defensive lines, and have racked up 10 sacks through four games, good for fifth in the league. Fortunately, this should at least be one place where strength matches up against strength for the Bills, as they have allowed just six sacks in four games.

This won't be an easy way for Orton's time as the Bills' starter to begin, especially since the Lions also stop the run very well. He has some weapons around him, but Orton could struggle at first, and probably doesn't have much upside as a short-term Fantasy option.

Bills to start Kyle Orton over EJ Manuel in Week 5
by Igor Mello |

Bills head coach Doug Marrone told reporters in his Monday press conference that the team will start Kyle Orton over EJ Manuel at quarterback for Week 5 at Detroit, per the team's official website.

After starting the season 0-2, Manuel and the Bills have dropped back-to-back games. Over that span, he compiled 463 passing yards with a 3-to-2 touchdown-to-interception ratio. He was sacked five times over that two-game stretch.

"It wasn't all EJ's fault. We just need more overall production from that position," Marrone said, via WGR Sportsradio 550.

After being released by the Cowboys in July and contemplating retirement, Orton signed with the Bills at the end of the preseason. It will be Orton's first start since Week 17 of last season.

Report: Doug Marrone didn't want to sign Kyle Orton
by Chris Cwik |

Bills head coach Doug Marrone was not a fan of the team signing quarterback Kyle Orton, according to Pro Football Talk.

Orton's signing did come at a strange time. With the preseason over, it looks like Orton was brought in to take playing time away from EJ Manuel if Manuel gets off to a slow start. Marrone reportedly got into a shouting match with team officials over the signing. There already appears to be some turmoil within the organization. That will only get worse if Manuel doesn't play to his potential the first few weeks of the season.
