Peppers finished his fourteenth season with 37 tackles, including 10.5 sacks. Peppers saw his sack total go from seven in his first year in Green Bay to 10.5 last season, an even more impressive increase when you consider that his defensive snap percentage dropped from 73.9 to 66.6 percent from his first year as a Packer to his second. The reduction in snap percentage is likely an effort to increase his longevity and effectiveness, and it appears to have done both, with Peppers expected to return for his 15th season, for which he'll be 36 years old. He started every game last season and has been very effective as a pass rusher since joining the Packers in 2014. As a result, there's nothing to indicate that he won't be equally impactful in 2016.
Peppers made four tackles (three solo) and tallied 2.5 sacks in Sunday's victory over the Raiders. Peppers' activity in the sack department Sunday gives him 9.5 sacks on the season, which is his best mark since the 2012 season. He will have two more games to get to the quarterback again and finish with double-digit sacks for the ninth time in his 14-year career.
Peppers recorded two tackles (both solo) and a sack in Sunday's victory over the Vikings. Peppers did not record a sack in the three games leading up to Sunday's but he got back on the board Sunday, and now has 6.5 sacks though 10 games this season.
Peppers recorded two tackles (both solo), a sack, and a forced fumble in Sunday's victory over the Rams. Peppers has just 14 (10 solo) tackles so far this year, but he has recorded at least one sack in four of the Packers' five games and has a total of 4.5 on the season.
