Here is a look at the AFC West leaders in a few categories after Week 11:
- Jay Cutler, Denver Broncos
- The numbers: He has thrown for 2,832 yards.
- What does it mean? Cutler is third in the NFL in passing yards behind New Orleans' Drew Brees and Arizona's Kurt Warner.
- LaDainian Tomlinson, San Diego Chargers
- The numbers: Tomlinson has 686 rushing yards.
- What does it mean? Tomlinson isn't having a great season as he is averaging 3.8 yards per carry, but he's still the best in the West.
- Brandon Marshall, Denver Broncos
- The numbers: Marshall has 63 catches.
- What does it mean? Marshall is trying to make his first Pro Bowl and he has a chance of making it with his solid numbers.
- Kirk Morrison, Oakland Raiders
- The numbers: Morrison has 87 tackles.
- What does it mean? Morrison leads Oakland teammate Gibril Wilson by one tackle. Morrison has had a solid season and with Denver's D.J. Williams out the past two games with a knee injury, Morrison has become the division leader in tackles.
- Kalimba Edwards, Oakland Raiders.
- The numbers: Edwards has five sacks.
- What does it mean? Edwards has been stuck on this number for a while but in a weak sack division he is still the leader.
