Calm, cool Orton delivers Bills in the clutch

With 3:07 left and the Buffalo Bills seven points and 80 yards from a victory they had done almost nothing to deserve, Kyle Orton walked into the huddle and cracked a smile.“And he was like, ... Read More

Orton a calming presence on final drive

Bills QB Kyle Orton did not have the best day when it came to protecting the football or in getting rid of it when the pocket broke down (sacked six times), but he did come through when the game was on the line. Almost as important as his play making on that final drive was […]

Bills 17, Vikings 16: Last-second TD brings another L

Bills 17, Vikings 16: Last-second TD brings another L

In shades of last season, when the Vikings lost several games in the final minute, Buffalo quarterback Kyle Orton threw a 2-yard touchdown pass to Sammy Watkins with one second left to give the Bills a 17-16 win Sunday at Ralph Wilson Stadium.

Orton caught defense crossed up on 4th-&-20

One of the bigger plays made on the 15-play 80-yard game-winning scoring drive by the Bills in the final minute of play was their conversion of a 4th-and-20 when Kyle Orton found Scott Chandler for a 24-yard pass play to keep the drive alive. Orton noticed something pre-snap and got the play off quicker than […]

Buffalo Bills pull out clutch win, 17-16 over Minnesota Vikings

Buffalo Bills pull out clutch win, 17-16 over Minnesota Vikings

How did that just happen? Usually, we're not for hyperbole on this website but today there will be some as the Buffalo Bills pulled out a somewhat miraculous 17-16 win over the Minnesota Vikings. They converted a 3rd-and-17 and a huge 4th-and-20 on the final drive and pulled out the winning touchdown with 1 second left on the clock. On that final drive, Kyle Orton led them down and a 24-yard gain up the seam to Scott Chandler extended the drive which was followed by an acrobatic catch at the one-yard line by Chris Hogan. With five seconds left and on the next play, Orton found Sammy...

Orton has shifted offensive focus

Whether it was intentional or not the presence of veteran QB Kyle Orton in the lineup has shifted the identity of the Bills offense a bit. They’re throwing more on first down, and overall as what was once a run heavy scheme has essentially flipped the past three games. It began in EJ Manuel’s last […]

2014 NFL Week 6 picks against the spread and betting trends

Here is how I would wager for these games. It is time for my weekly picks against the spread. I was a respectable 9-6 last week, bringing me up above .500 finally. I am 46-45-1 on the year, but that is something considering I began 4-12 in Week 1. With one game in the books from Thursday Night Football, when I correctly picked the Jets to cover (and lose), I added another win to start the week 1-0. Here are my picks against the Vegas spread and then some pertinent trends heading into the week. Vikings at Bills (-5.5): I like the Bills at home. They are doing a little more with Kyle Orton...

Why Orton wears number 18

He hasn’t worn 18 for his entire NFL career, but whenever the number has been available Kyle Orton has made sure that 18 is on his back. Here’s why. Growing up Orton idolized Nebraska QB Brook Berringer, who stepped in for an injured Tommie Frazier back in 1995 and won eight straight games before the […]

Behind Enemy Lines: Kyle Orton, Bills defensive line and more with beat writer Jay Skurski

For the Vikings Week 7 road trip to Buffalo, we reached out to Jay Skurski, who covers the Bills for The Buffalo News, for this week’s edition of “Behind Enemy Lines.” Here are five questions we asked Skurski about the game. 1. Has the offense been more efficient under quarterback Kyle Orton the last two weeks? JS: The offense has averaged about a half yard more per play under Orton (5.1) than it did in Manuel’s two straight losses (4.55), so it’s been better, but not by a great deal. Orton, though, does have a significantly better completion percentage (66.7) and yards per attempt...
