There is no doubt that Kyle Orton will play with passion in an attempt to show why he should have never been demoted in favor of Tim Tebow, and Orton does have an intimate knowledge of the Broncos personnel.
However, after going against their former quarterback in practice, the Denver defense has intimate knowledge about Orton as well.
The Broncos defense knows Orton's faults better than anyone, and after delving into game tape, John Fox and the first-year coaching staff know quite a bit about him, too.
And Denver receivers can help their secondary by offering tips on where Orton likes to place the ball or how he wanted them to run routes.
The offensive line has a feel of exactly where he likes to sit in the pocket, and when he is the most susceptible to pass-rush.
So, as recent discussions have revolved around how much Orton knows about Denver, the same can be said about the Broncos knowing things about him.
Either way, the game still has to be played. Knowledge of Orton or the Broncos might be a factor but not as big of a factor as how hard each team plays.
