It wasn't one of his top performances of the season, but, like he's done virtually every week, Peppers made enough of a contribution to justify his salary against the Vikings.
He was in the right place at the right time when DE Henry Melton tipped one of Brett Favre's passes in the first quarter. The ball hung in the air and Peppers moved under it for his second interception of the season. It gave the Bears 1st-and-10 at Minnesota's 14-yard line and led to a 29-yard field goal by Robbie Gould.
Peppers didn't have a sack for the first time in more than a month, but he brought pressure often and made rookie QB Joe Webb aware of his presence when he came on in relief of Favre in the second quarter.
He was credited for being in on five tackles, and three of them came on plays where the Vikings gained two yards or less. It was another solid, albeit unspectacular, showing by Peppers.
