Week 16 stats to know
By Bill Williamson
One key statistic for each AFC West team, courtesy of ESPN Stats & Information, heading into Week 16:
Running back Knowshon Moreno has 94 rush attempts in the past four weeks, tied for second-most in the NFL during that time. It’s amazing, considering Moreno was inactive for eight consecutive games this season.
The Chiefs committed 29 turnovers in their first eight games, but they have gone six straight games committing one or no turnovers.
Even after shutting out the Chiefs last week, the Raiders are allowing touchdowns on 25.2 percent of their opponent’s drives. Only Buffalo has a worse percentage.
The Chargers have not scored a rushing touchdown since Week 5. Every other team in the league has scored on the ground in that time.
