Chiefs Vs. Bears: Kyle Orton More Concerned About Chemistry With Teammates Versus Playbook

As is life for a veteran quarterback who isn't necessarily considered a franchise quarterback but is more than capable of leading an NFL offense when called upon, Kyle Orton's introduction to the Kansas City Chiefs has been met with uncertainty, but Orton believes learning the playbook isn't his biggest priority.

Orton will have to get acclimated to an offense that is onto its third running back (Jackie Battle) its second tight end (Leonard Pope) and a rookie wide receiver (Jonathan Baldwin) as the Chiefs playoff hopes continue to dimly flicker.

Tyler Palko has been announced as the starter for Sunday versus the Chicago Bears.
