The top of the Broncos depth chart is clear. Kyle Orton is the man in Denver, and his performance on Saturday night should make coach John Fox feel confident about his decision.
Orton completed 10-of-13 passes for 135 yards in two quarters of work against Buffalo. His final two drives ended in touchdowns. Another promising drive was done in by an illegal procedure penalty. Orton made quick decisions and was very accurate on some tricky passes.
The rest of the Broncos quarterback depth chart is less clear. Brady Quinn entered the game as the Broncos No. 2 quarterback ahead of Tim Tebow in the two minute drill and led Denver to the goal line. He was then picked off on a pass tipped at the line of scrimmage. The halftime score was Broncos 14, Bills 3.
Tebow will play in the fourth quarter.
