Former Denver Broncos' starting quarterback Kyle Orton will start Sunday for the Kansas City Chiefs, CBSSports.com has reported. Orton was released from the Broncos after being supplanted by Tim Tebow.

“Kyle did a nice job and it looks like he’s throwing better and so we are going to start him in the game," Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel said, according to the report. The Chiefs will play the Green Bay Packers Sunday, and Crennel sees Orton giving his team a better chance to win than former starter Tyler Palko.
