Here is a look at the AFC West leaders in a few categories after Week 10:

Passing yards
Jay Cutler, Denver Broncos

The numbers: He has thrown for 2,616 yards.

What does it mean? Cutler is second in the NFL in passing yards behind New Orleans' Drew Brees after his 447-yard performance against Cleveland.

Rushing yards
LaDainian Tomlinson, San Diego Chargers

The numbers: He has 629 yards.

What does it mean? Tomlinson expressed concern over the Chargers' running attack earlier this week. The team's running game just isn't where it is supposed to be. Still, Tomlinson leads the division in yardage.

Receptions
Brandon Marshall, Denver Broncos

The numbers: Marshall has 57 catches.

What does it mean? Marshall continues to be one of the most dominant receivers in the NFL.

Tackles
D.J. Williams, Denver Broncos

The numbers: The Broncos' weakside linebacker has 77 tackles.

What does it mean? Williams missed last week and will likely miss three more games with a need injury.

Sacks
Kalimba Edwards, Oakland Raiders

The numbers: Edwards has five sacks.

What does it mean? Edwards has done a nice job while Derrick Burgess has been injured. Burgess may come back this week after missing five games. Once he returns, Burgess and Edwards should make a good team.

Interceptions
Several players have two interceptions. DeAngelo Hall did lead the division with three interceptions but he was released last week and is now with the Redskins.
