PFW Online: Vol. 23, Issue 27

Published: 2009-01-05
Cover Date: January 11, 2009
This is the issue for divisional playoff previews and wild-card game coverage.


Panthers DE Julius Peppers has rebounded in a big way from the worst season of his pro career by resuming his place as one of the most feared pass rushers in the league and emerging as a vocal team leader.


QB Ben Roethlisberger’s up-and-down play has left the Steelers’ offense searching for answers as it prepares for the postseason.


The veteran experience and savvy of QB Kerry Collins arguably have been the missing pieces to a Titans offense that helped produce a league-best 13 victories in 2008.


The Giants’ offensive line has been an underrated key to the defending champions’ success, protecting Eli Manning and guiding both Brandon Jacobs and Derrick Ward to more than 1,000 rushing yards.
