Orton's rare double

Nov. 6, 2013
 
  • Filed Under

If Kyle Orton starts Sunday against the Packers, he will do something that hasn't been done in the NFL in more than a decade -- start at quarterback for two different teams against the same opponent in the same season. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, the last player to do so was Kerry Collins in 1998, when he started twice against the Atlanta Falcons. Once was as a member of the Carolina Panthers. The other was with the New Orleans Saints Orton started for the Denver Broncos against the Packers on Oct. 2 but was waived last month and then claimed off waivers by the Chiefs. Kansas City's interim head coach Romeo Crennel said today that Orton would start this week if the injured index finger on his throwing hand is OK.
