ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Kyle Orton's passing stats are gaudy and historic through the opening month of the season.
Still, the Broncos quarterback can't help but imagine how much better this offense might be if only Denver had a small hint of a running game, just enough to keep opponents honest.
So far, the Broncos offense has been quite one-dimensional, relying heavily on Orton's arm.
Through the opening four games of the season, Orton has thrown for 1,419 yards.
His three straight 300-yard games are just the fourth time that's occurred in Broncos history. Hall of Famer John Elway did it once, and Brian Griese twice.
