" 46.2: Kyle Orton’s quarterback rating the last two years on possessions that began in the last 10 minutes of regulation when trailing by eight points or less.
The series that ended in a tipped Will Witherspoon interception with 1:39 remaining in the game was the 11th that Orton and the Broncos have faced in in that scenario since Week 1 of the 2010 season. From these 11 possessions, the Broncos have scored just once: last year in Week 4 at Tennessee, when Orton hit Correll Buckhalter for a game-winning, 6-yard touchdown two plays after a 49-yard pass-interference penalty put the Broncos into first-and-goal.
Orton’s raw statistics in this scenario the last two years are as follows:
Completion percentage: 47.8
Yards per attempt: 5.80
Rushes-yards: 3 for 12
Yards per carry: 4.0
Sacks-yards lost: 5 for 27
Fumbles lost: 1"
This is what many of us have been saying for the past 3 seasons. These are VERY sobering numbers.
