Julius Peppers of the Green Bay Packers has wreaked havoc on offenses since entering the league in 2002 as the second player overall in that year’s draft.
 
He made history during the Packers’ Thursday night win over the Minnesota Vikings in Week 5 when he became the first player in NFL history to record 100 sacks and 10 interceptions in a career. Peppers picked off Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder and ran it back 49 yards for a touchdown.
 
To date, the veteran defensive lineman turned linebacker has amassed 120 sacks in his 13-season career.
