Orton has big day as Broncos win home opener

DENVER (AP) - Kyle Orton threw for 307 yards and two TD passes and top draft pick Demaryius Thomas caught eight passes for 97 yards and a touchdown in the Denver Broncos' 31-14 rout of the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.

Orton also threw one to Eddie Royal - his first TD catch since 2008 as the Broncos dominated the Seahawks (1-1) from the start and played keep-away in the second half.

The Broncos (1-1) won their 11th straight home opener and improved to 24-3 in home openers since 1984, the best mark in major professional sports during that span.

Thomas, who missed all of the preseason and last week's opener after aggravating his surgically-repaired left foot during a scrimmage last month, hauled in Orton's 21-yard touchdown pass to make it 31-7 and cap his smashing debut.
