One guy to watch
By Bill Williamson
A player to watch from all four AFC West teams:
Denver, Ronnie Hillman, running back: The rookie will get extensive playing time at Kansas City on Sunday with starting running back Willis McGahee for the next eight weeks with a knee injury. Hillman is explosive and expect Denver to try to get to him the ball on the edge.
Kansas City, tight end, Tony Moeaki: He is starting to come around and has seven catches in the past two games. He now has 21 on the season. Moeaki was a rookie standout in 2010 but he missed all of last season with a knee injury.
Oakland, Denarius Moore, receiver: Moore had just one catch despite being targeted seven times Sunday against New Orleans. He is one of the most talented receivers in the AFC West and the Raiders need to utilize him more than just for one catch Sunday at Cincinnati.
San Diego, Melvin Ingram, pass-rusher: Ingram has just a half sack this season, but he was very active against Denver. He has made progress throughout the season and the Chargers are looking for him to continue against Baltimore.
