Kyle Orton to remain Bills starter, Robert Griffin could return Redskins starters role

The Bills will keep Kyle Orton as their starting quarterback going into Week 15.

Orton has done little over the past month but still gives the Bills the best chance to win games. At 7-6 the Bills playoff hopes are shrinking by the week but turning back to E.J. Manuel is not an option at this point.

With the Packers on tap the Bills are going to have a hard time moving the ball anyway. Orton was 38-of-57 for 355 yards and a touchdown while throwing two interceptions against the Broncos in Week 14. Most of those stats were accumulated in garbage time as the Broncos got out to an early lead and never looked back.

The quarterback situation in Washington is less clear.

Robert Griffin III came into Sunday’s loss to the Rams in replacement of Colt McCoy who suffered a neck injury. Griffin responded by going 3-of-4 for 33 yards while being sacked yet again. If McCoy cannot gain medical clearance then it is clear that Griffin will start next week.

Being healthy does not necessarily mean that McCoy will start. Head coach Jay Gruden and the front office continue to be locked in a battle over Griffin. The offense has not been able to move the ball regardless of whom has been under center.
