After the team’s Week 5 overtime win against the Patriots, two more Broncos are up for weekly NFL awards.
Orton threw for 330 yards, two touchdowns and one interception (a Hail Mary attempt) on 35-of-48 passing on Sunday. He also drove the Broncos on the game-tying touchdown drive with less than 10 minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, and led the game-winning drive in overtime that ended in Matt Prater’s 41-yard field goal.
His 72.9 completion percentage and 48 attempts were both career highs.
Moreno made his first career start, and went on to rush 21 times for 88 yards and catch four passes for 36 yards — 124 yards from scrimmage in the win. That number led all rookies for the week, and was a career high.
He also led all rookies in rushing in Week 5, and his four runs of 10 yards or more tied for the second-most in the league last week.
