Orton Gets the Nod to Start Sunday at QB vs Packers

The Chiefs are hoping a new look under center will lead to some good luck on Sunday when they play host to the Green Bay Packers at Arrowhead Stadium.

Interim coach Romeo Crennel announced today that veteran Kyle Orton will get the nod at quarterback for Crennel’s first game at the helm with Chiefs.

“The quarterback Kyle [Orton] did a nice job, it looks like he’s throwing better so we’re going to start him in the game and he’s going to be the quarterback,” Crennel said via the team website.

Crennel had said Orton, who dislocated his finger in his first game with the Chiefs against Chicago, would start if the finger was healthy enough to allow it. Otherwise, Crennel was ready to hand the reins to rookie Ricky Stanzi, who will be the No. 2 QB when the Chiefs face the unbeaten Green Bay Packers on Sunday.

Tyler Palko, who has started the past four games, will be the third quarterback.

    Glad to see they are starting Orton. It’s the only chance they have against the Packers.
