Kyle Orton finished 8-for-13 for 84 yards and tossed touchdowns to Eddie Royal and  Brandon Lloyd  for the Broncos, who were making their preseason debut and finished last season with a mark of 8-8, second place in the AFC West.

Heisman  Trophy winner Tim  Tebow made his NFL debut and went 8-for-13 for 105 yards  and  ran the ball into  the end zone from  seven yards out on the final play of the game.

The Broncos held a 14-0 lead after the first quarter as Orton tossed touchdown passes of 12 yards to Royal and six yards to Lloyd.

Field  goals  of 27 and 31  yards off the foot  of Rayner in the third quarter gave Cincinnati a 23-17 lead.

The  Bengals  continued to pour it  on in the  fourth as Johnson scored from a yard out and Rayner punched a 26-yard field goal for a 33-17 advantage.
