Orton: Broncos left 150-200 yards on field

Glove or no glove, miracle ending or no miracle ending, Broncos quarterback Kyle Orton expects a better offensive performance Sunday against the visiting Cleveland Browns.

In making his franchise debut in the season opener at Cincinnati, Orton completed 17-of-28 passes for 243 yards. The team finished with 302 total yards, but 87 of that came on Orton’s final snap from center – a fluke, game-winning touchdown reception by receiver Brandon Stokely.

“I think we easily left 150-200 yards of offense on the field,” Orton said today in his weekly news conference. “Certainly, you can’t make a habit of that. But it was the first week, saw some different things, (but if) we make some corrections we’ll be ready to go (Sunday).”

Orton continues to practice with the glove on his throwing hand. The glove helps protect the stitched wound on his index finger, caused by a dislocated knuckle on Aug. 30.

“We’ll have to go through practice week to see how it goes,” Orton said of the glove. “I played with it last week, so if I have to (wear it again), it shouldn’t be that big of a deal anyways.”
