Kyle Orton engineers late TD drive in Bills' Week 7 win
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Bills quarterback Kyle Orton completed 31 of his 43 pass attempts for 283 yards with two touchdowns and one interception in his team's 17-16 win over the Vikings in Week 7.

Orton put his team ahead early in the second quarter, tossing a beautiful 26-yard touchdown to Sammy Watkins early in the second quarter. He saved his best for the end of the game, getting the ball back down six points with a little more than three minutes left in the fourth quarter and engineering an 80-yard drive capped by a two-yard touchdown to Watkins in the corner of the end zone with one second left on the clock.

Orton is 2-1 as the Bills' starter, and he's managed 890 yards, five touchdowns and three interceptions during his three games. His next test comes on the road in Week 8 when the Bills square off with the Jets.

Bills QB Kyle Orton throws for two TDs in losing effort Week 6
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Bills quarterback Kyle Orton threw for a pair of touchdowns Sunday against the Patriots. However, counterpart Tom Brady threw for four touchdowns, leading New England to a 37-22 win Week 6.

Orton completed 24 of 38 passes for 299 yards and one touchdown. He was able to tie the game at 7 in the second quarter with a 7-yard touchdown pass to Robert Woods. His second touchdown pass came with 5:58 left in the fourth quarter. It was an 8-yard touchdown to Chris Hogan, which cut the deficit to 30-22.

Orton, who also lost a fumble Sunday, has passed for 607 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in two games since taking over as the team's starting quarterback. The Bills are back in action Week 7 vs. Minnesota.

Kyle Orton racks up 308 passing yards in Week 5 win vs. Lions
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Bills quarterback Kyle Orton went 30 for 43 for 308 yards, one touchdown and one interception in his team's 17-14 comeback win over the Lions in Week 5.

Orton's interception had shades of deposed starter EJ Manuel, throwing a dangerous pass to a covered receiver in the flat that was picked off and returned 41 yards for a touchdown, putting the Bills behind 14-0 early in the second quarter. He then led the team to 17 unanswered points, including a fourth-quarter touchdown on a two-yard pass to an uncovered receiver off play action. It was a successful debut in the starting lineup for Orton despite the ugly pick. The 3-2 Bills host the Patriots in Week 6.

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

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 | CBSSports.com

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.
