Around the web: Broncos prevail vs "cheap" Titans

The Broncos overcame early problems and left Tennessee with their first road victory after a fourth quarter rally by the defense, the offense and the special teams. []

Denver Broncos quarterback Kyle Orton had some choice words for the Tennessee Titans' defense following the Broncos' 26-20 win on Sunday, telling the team's official site that the Titans played a "cheap" game. []

The Titans cheap play didn't slow down the Broncos passing attack. Orton went 35 of 40 passes for 341 yards and two scores. Orton now leads the NFL in passing yards, hitting his new favorite target, Brandon Lloyd, for 454 yards yards over the first four weeks. Just two yards behind Reggie Waybe, Lloyd is ranked 2nd in receiving yards, while Eddie Royal and Jabar Gaffney rank 12th and 27th respectively. [Stats]

While he lit up the stats, Orton also took some hits, and multiple sacks. One of these times, Broncos quarterback Kyle Orton is not going to get up from under that pile of sweaty, angry men. And then this NFL season will be broken beyond repair for Denver. [DenverPost]

The rushing attack hasn't fared too well either. In the two games Knowshon Moreno has missed with a pulled hamstring, Laurence Maroney has rushed 23 times for 29 yards (1.3 yards per carry) and Correll Buckhalter has 10 carries for 15 yards (1.5 yards per carry). "We'll get better," Maroney said. "We have no choice. There's nowhere to go but up." [DenverPost]

Next week the Broncos will travel to Baltimore to take on the Ravens before returning home the following week to face the Jets. [Schedule]
