After starting out 2-2, the Buffalo Bills have announced that Kyle Orton will be taking over as the team's starting quarterback.

The announcement came Monday after the Bills fell to the Houston Texans 23-17 Sunday afternoon.

The veteran Orton will take over for struggling starter E.J. Manuel as the Bills prepare to head to Detroit to take on the Lions in week 5.

Bills head coach Doug Marrone says the team needs more overall production from the quarterback position.
