Julius Peppers needs to be fresh to get the job done

Julius Peppers is 33 and, by his own admission, ‘‘not fresh’’ after 10 games of his 12th NFL season. But he’s still Julius Peppers. At least he was last week, when the Bears’ eight-time Pro Bowl defensive end awoke from one of his intermittent slumbers to dominate the Ravens in a 23-20 victory at Soldier Field. Peppers had two sacks, two other tackles for loss, two hurries and a career-high 12 tackles. (Chicago Sun-Times)
