Comparing the hot streaks of Kyle Orton and Ryan Fitzpatrick in Buffalo

A small percentage of Bills fans are already mulling over the idea of a new contract for Kyle Orton. Is that as crazy as it seems? Yes... but maybe only for now. Kyle Orton is in the midst of the strongest stretch of quarterback play that the Buffalo Bills have seen since the first seven weeks of the 2011 season. In his four games as the starter since taking over for EJ Manuel in Week 5, Orton and the Bills have a 3-1 record. The veteran is completing 67.4 percent of his passes (95 completions on 141 attempts) at 8.0 yards per attempt (1,128 yards total), with nine touchdowns, three...

It’s why he’s getting midseason recognition despite playing in just half of Buffalo’s games this year. NFL.com’s midseason report lists Orton as one of the midseason winners. Here’s their synopsis.

Fantasy football Week 9: Buffalo Bills passing game targets

Halfway through his rookie season, Sammy Watkins is on pace for 76 receptions, 1,180 yards, and 10 touchdowns. What else can we surmise about the Bills' passing attack right now? At the midway point of the 2014 season, the Buffalo Bills are starting to establish some trends - and rely heavily upon - their passing attack, under the operation of veteran quarterback Kyle Orton. Instead of updating our year-to-date receiving chart within its usual targets-per-snap metric, we'll sort it in descending order by the most-targeted players in the passing offense for the bye week. Naturally, rookie...

Jets vs. Bills: Five Questions With Buffalo Rumblings

Brian Galliford of Buffalo Rumblings was kind enough to answer five Bills questions from me ahead of tomorrow's game at the Meadowlands. 1. Describe some of the differences since the Bills changed from E.J. Manuel to Kyle Orton at quarterback. They're far more efficient passing the football, and they're far easier to sack and turn over. It's a classic "take the bad with the good" situation. Orton is utterly lacking in mobility and has literally run into the arms of defenders on a few occasions, and is a bit more cavalier with the football than Manuel was. But he's also completing ...

It's Time To Start Thinking About Your Fantasy Football Lineup

BTB is back with the Week 8 edition of our fantasy football primer. Quarterbacks Start Kyle Orton - Two weeks ago I made a couple snide comments that Kyle had spent the past few seasons on the bench and that was where you should leave him. Its time for me to eat a little crow. Don't get me wrong, Orton is still no Peyton Manning, but he will put some solid points on the board for you this weekend. Since coming out of his paid retirement the Buffalo QB has been averaging nearly 300 yards per game and he is pushing a 2:1 touchdown to interception ratio. This week the Bills will face a run...
