Chicago Bears' Julius Peppers Named NFC Defensive Player Of The Month

After an impressive month leading the Chicago Bears defense, star defensive end Julius Peppers was awarded the NFC Player of the Month award for November by the league, according to the Bears' official Twitter feed. It was a strong month for Chicago's defense, as they forced numerous turnovers while leading the Bears to a 3-1 record. And you certainly can't blame the defense for that loss against Oakland, either.

Peppers finishes the month with 10 tackles, four sacks, three passes defended and a forced fumble in four games. He's having another exceptional season as one of the key cogs on Chicago's defense, with 27 tackles, eight sacks, two fumble recoveries and a forced fumble in 11 games so far this season.

He's already matched his sack total from last season, when he was named to the Pro Bowl as well as first-team All-NFL. There's a good chance that he reaches triple-digits in career sacks this season, too, as he's already up to 97 in his ten-year career.
