Orton ties team record

It will matter little to Kyle Orton knowing his indifference toward individual statistics, but the Bills quarterback tied a team record in Sunday’s loss at Denver.

Orton tied the team record for most completions in a game. He was 38-57 passing for 355 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions. He also had a rushing touchdown. His 38 completions tied a team record that is held by Joe Ferguson, who had 38 completions in an October game against the Dolphins in 1983.

Orton also set a record for most pass attempts in a game with his 57 throws in the game. That eclipsed the previous record of 56, also held by Ferguson in that exact same Miami game back in 1983.

For Orton the 57 attempts matched his personal single-game high and his 38 completions were a new personal best for him. His previous completion high was 37 in a 2010 game against Indianapolis while he was with the Broncos.
