Here is a look at the AFC West leaders in a few categories after Week 11:

Passing yards

Rushing yards

  • 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.

Receptions

  • 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.

Tackles

  • 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.

Sacks

  • 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.

Interceptions

  • Jarrad Page, Kansas City Chiefs
  • The numbers: The Chiefs safety has three interceptions.
  • What does it mean? Page had an interception Sunday to separate himself from the pack.
