CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Julius Peppers added his name to another Panthers record Thursday night.
With a first-quarter sack of Philadelphia quarterback Carson Wentz, Peppers recorded sack No. 150 of his illustrious professional career, bringing him to fifth all-time in NFL history. The all-time mark is held by former Buffalo Bills and Washington Redskins great Bruce Smith, who has 200 career sacks.
Peppers is now the only player in NFL history with 150 sacks and 10 interceptions.
