Kyle Orton Week 16 Fantasy Update: Chiefs Quarterback Throws For 300 Yards

A week after upsetting the previously undefeated Green Bay Packers, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Kyle Orton threw for 300 yards against the Oakland Raiders in his second start for the Chiefs. Orton completed 21 of 36 passes, threw a touchdown pass and threw two interceptions.

Orton threw two interceptions today against the Raiders with his first coming near the end of the half, but that one did not hurt the Chiefs as they picked off the Raiders three plays later. However, his second interception allowed the Raiders to kick a field goal and give them a 13-6 lead.

The only touchdown on the day for Orton came on a 3-yard touchdown pass to Dwayne Bowe to tie the game late in the fourth quarter and would send the game into overtime.

Orton would have earned fantasy owners anywhere between 10 and 12 points depending on your leagues scoring system.
