Denver Broncos QB Kyle Orton Named Week 10 AFC Offensive Player Of The Week

The Denver Broncos have announced that quarterback Kyle Orton will be named AFC Offensive Player of the Week for Week 10.

Orton earned the honor with his 22-of-34, 296 yard, four touchdown, no interception performance on Sunday in a 49-29 rout of the Kansas City Chiefs. The game also happened to occur on Orton's 28th birthday, giving Orton another reason to remember the day fondly.

The four touchdowns set a career-high for the former Purdue Boilermaker signal caller.

It is the second time in Orton's career, and first time this season, that he is honored with the award. He previously won it last season in Week 5 when he completed 35-of-48 passes for 330 yards and two touchdowns in Denver's 20-17 overtime victory against the New England Patriots on October 11, 2009.

This comes on the heels of former Bronco and current Cleveland Browns RB Peyton Hillis winning the same award with his 184 yard, 2 TD performance in Week 9.
