Peppers’ pick-6 makes him first member of NFL’s 100/10 club

Julius Peppers' speed has terrorized QBs for more than a decade — both off the edge and in pass coverage. And despite his age, the 34-year-old flashed his wheels on Thursday in running this interception back 49 yards into the end zone ... and the history books.

Thirty players in NFL history have accumulated at least 100 sacks in a career, including 10 Hall of Famers. Hundreds of players have intercepted at least 10 passes in their careers (OK, that isn’t quite as impressive). But never in history has a player done both in a career.

Until now.

With his 49-yard interception return for a touchdown in the second quarter of Thursday night’s 42-10 drubbing of the Vikings, the Packers’ Julius Peppers became the first player in NFL history with at least 100 sacks and 10 interceptions in a career.

For added measure, it was Peppers’ first TD as a Packer, the third team for whom he scored a defensive TD (Carolina and Chicago are the others), and his first Lambeau Leap.

Here’s the play:

And the leap:

And the love:

Oh, and Peppers added a half a sack in the game, giving him 120.5 for his career.
