By the numbers: Best in the West
By Bill Williamson
Here is a look at the division leaders in some key statistical categories after Week 2:
Player: Philip Rivers, San Diego.
What does it mean: There are a few plays Rivers would like to have back, but he’s been slinging the ball pretty well.
Player: Darren McFadden, Oakland
What does it mean: He’s seven yards off the NFL lead in this category.
Player: Vincent Jackson, San Diego
What does it mean: He showed in New England what a monster he is.
Player: Wesley Woodyard, Denver
What does it mean: He is taking advantage of his playing time with D.J. Williams out.
Player: Richard Seymour, Oakland
What does it mean: He needs to regroup his unit after a tough loss at Buffalo.
Player: Several players are tied
What does it mean: It’s way too early to tell.
