By the numbers: Best in West

Here is a look at the division leaders in some key statistical categories after Week 3:

Passing yards

Player: Philip Rivers, San Diego.

Yards: 979

What does it mean: Rivers’ interception issues are overshadowing his big numbers.

Rushing yards

Player: Darren McFadden, Oakland

Yards: 393

What does it mean: Ladies and Gentlemen, your NFL rushing leader.


Player: Vincent Jackson, San Diego

Yards: 266

What does it mean: Jackson continues to shine


Player: Wesley Woodyard, Denver

Total: 29

What does it mean: He is a key part of an improved unit.


Player: Richard Seymour, Oakland

Sacks: 2.5

What does it mean: I expect Seymour to have a big game against his former team, New England, Sunday.


Player: Brandon Flowers, Kansas City

Interceptions: 2

What does it mean: There’s a reason Kansas City just gave him an extension.
