A portion of the release from the NFL related to the Ravens hosting the Broncos game this Sunday:
THE LEAGUE LEADER: Through Week 4, Denver Broncos quarterback KYLE ORTON leads the NFL with 1,419 passing yards. With 332 passing yards on Sunday, Orton can rank in the top five for the most passing yards through a team’s first five games of a season.
TRIO OF PASSERS: Through four games, quarterbacks KYLE ORTON (1,419) of the Broncos, PEYTON MANNING (1,365) of the Colts and PHILIP RIVERS (1,328) of the Chargers are on pace to reach 1,500 passing yards in their team’s first five games in 2010. If Orton, Manning and Rivers each reach 1,500 yards on Sunday, they will tie the mark set in 2002 for the most quarterbacks with 1,500-plus yards through their teams’ first five games in NFL history.
