By the numbers: Best in the AFC West
By Bill Williamson
Here are the AFC West leaders in some key statistical categories after Week 4:
Player: Kyle Orton, Denver
What does it mean: Orton’s yardage total after four games is the second most in NFL history.
Player: Darren McFadden, Oakland
What does it mean: McFadden hopes to play Sunday against San Diego despite a hamstring injury.
Player: Brandon Lloyd, Denver
What does it mean: Lloyd is becoming one of the feel-good stories of the NFL as he rescues his career with a huge start of the season.
Player: Steve Gregory, San Diego, D.J. Williams, Denver
What does it mean: Gregory will miss the next four games because he was suspended for using a performance enhancing substance. Gregory said he did not take it knowingly.
Player: Shaun Phillips, San Diego
What does it mean: Phillips is second in the NFL in sacks after a four-sack show against Arizona.
Player: Antoine Cason, San Diego, Brandon Flowers, Kansas City
What does it mean: Cason couldn’t take the division lead with Flowers on a bye.
