Best in the AFC West, by the numbers

Posted by ESPN.com's Bill Williamson

Here is a look at the AFC West leaders in a few categories after Week 13:

Passing yards

Jay Cutler, Denver Broncos

  • The numbers: He has thrown for 3,393 yards.

  • What does it mean? Cutler is the leading yardage passer in the AFC and he is making a strong push for the Pro Bowl.

Rushing yards

LaDainian Tomlinson, San Diego Chargers

  • The numbers: He has rushed for 794 yards.

  • What does it mean? Tomlinson is still on pace for 1,000 yards despite the fact that he ran for 24 yards last week, which was his second-lowest outing in his eight-season career.


Tony Gonzalez, Kansas City Chiefs

  • The numbers: The Chiefs tight end has 73 catches.

  • What does it mean? Another huge game allowed Gonzalez to bypass Denver's Brandon Marshall for the reception lead in the division. Marshall has 72 catches.


Kirk Morrison, Oakland Raiders

  • The numbers: The Raiders linebacker has 101 tackles.

  • What does it mean? Morrison is fourth in the NFL and first in the AFC in tackles.


Kalimba Edwards, Oakland Raiders

  • The numbers: Edwards has five sacks.

  • What does it mean? The injured Edwards leads a weak division in sacks.


Jarrad Page, Kansas City Chiefs

  • The numbers: The Chiefs safety has three interceptions.

  • What does it mean? The sacks and interceptions are just not piling up in the AFC West.
