With another pick-six, Peppers became the first player in NFL history to have 100 sacks and 4 defensive touchdowns. He’s been a godsend to this defense which was sorely missing playmakers last season.

In his hybrid “elephant” role, he has two interceptions on the year, both returned for TDs. You think the Bears are regretting their decision to let Peppers walk this offseason?
