Peppers, 37, was named the Week 4 NFC Defensive Player of the Week after the 16-year veteran recorded two sacks, four tackles, and three QB hurries in Carolina's 33-30 victory over New England.
Although Peppers' feat is impressive considering his age, he's not the oldest of all time to win Defensive Player of the Week, that honor belongs to Charles Woodson. The Raiders' safety was 38 years old when he was named DPOW in 2014 -- in 2015 Woodson made the Pro Bowl team and retired at the age of 39.
However, Peppers does have the distinct honor of winning more Defensive Player of the Week awards than any other active player.
It's nice to see Peppers quiet the naysayers who all but said he needed to register for his AARP membership card. The "old man" and his teammates on the 3-1 Panthers still have plenty of work to do -- keep pounding.
