ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Kyle Orton's not the problem. He'll have to be a big part of the solution, though.
The Denver Broncos (1-2) have a wheezing ground game, a turnstile offensive line and issues finishing drives, ingredients that will add up to many more losses if they don't fix things fast.
Orton, though, is off to the best start of his career on the heels of a terrific training camp that earned him a contract extension and put to rest any notion of rookie Tim Tebow taking the
reins of Denver's offense anytime soon.
He's already thrown for 1,078 yards, the NFL's fifth-highest yardage total after three games over the last half century.
