The AFC West by the numbers: offense. Passing, rushing and receiving.

The Denver Broncos are now definitively in the hunt for the playoffs. We are in the 2nd place in our division, where the Raiders are leading. The fact is that our schedule is a bit 'easier' and that's why we are a real contender to take it. We can't discard the Chargers, but they are not showing a great football. And the Chiefs have just lost their starting QB.

So, after 11 weeks (10 games) and a real post-season possibilty, I think we have an enough sample to evaluate our players' perfomances. It's fair enough to compare them with the other AFC West players. So, after the jump, here we go with the offense.

Any thoughts about it? Do these numbers reflect our real offensive perfomance? Do they tell the whole story? Are we a real contender to a post-season appearance?
GO BRONCOS!
