Kyle Orton was impressive in his preseason debut against the Cincinnati Bengals.
He threw two touchdown passes in three series Sunday night and reminded Broncos fans that he's the one running the offense if not selling the most jerseys. The Broncos lost 33-24 to the Bengals.
Orton has been overshadowed in camp by Tim Tebow, but doesn't seem to mind. Instead, Orton has showed a lot more comfort in his second season running coach Josh McDaniels' intricate offense.
He led the Broncos on a 72 yard, six-play opening touchdown drive.
Orton played three series and threw a pair of touchdown passes, finishing 8 of 13 for 84 yards.
