Bengals Vs. Broncos: Game Time, TV Schedule, Announcers And More

After a disappointing debut, the Broncos try to even their record with a game against the visiting Bengals. Can Kyle Orton stave off the calls for Tim Tebow? Will Cedric Benson have his way with Denver's run defense?

Kyle Orton threw for over 300 yards with a touchdown in Denver's Week 1 match against the Raiders, but the fact that he turned the ball over twice (one interception and one huge lost fumble) while barely completing half of his attempts convinced a lot of the fans to start chanting for Tim Tebow

Fortunately for Orton, John Fox is not one of those fans. The Broncos head coach affirmed his faith in Orton when speaking to reporters on Tuesday. "We came up a little short. There were plenty of reasons why. It wasn't just the quarterback by any stretch. Kyle is our starting quarterback and I don't think too many guys are firing all their guys because their team happened to lose in week 1."

Fox still may need to juggle the depth chart, though, as several other key players suffered injuries while playing on a slick, rain-soaked field. Cornerback Champ Bailey and running back Knowshon Moreno suffered strained hamstrings, while wide receiver Brandon Lloyd tweaked his groin. Willis McGahee, who finished with four carries for just three yards against the Raiders, will likely carry a heavier load for Denver regardless of Moreno's status. 

The Bengals have injury concerns of their own, most noticeably at quarterback. Rookie Andy Dalton started in Week 1 and played well before leaving with an injured arm. Tests did not reveal any serious injury, but it's likely that backup Bruce Gradkowski will get the start. Gradkowski threw for 92 yards and a touchdown after taking over for Dalton, doing most of his damage with a 41-yard TD strike to rookie wide receiver A.J. Green

With so much uncertainty in the passing game, expect the Bengals to ride Cedric Benson as far as he'll take them. Benson carried the ball 25 times for 121 yards and a touchdown in Week 1. Denver gave up 190 rushing yards to Oakland -- including 150 to Darren McFadden alone -- which bodes well for Benson.
