Peppers earns weekly honor
As a team, the Panthers sacked the Raiders five times.
"We knew it was going to be a situation where we wanted to get most of our pressure with our front four - particularly our ends," head coach John Fox said. "I thought we had pretty steady pressure around the corner by everybody, but Julius is special."
Peppers, however, wasn't altogether pleased with the defense's effort.
"It was a good day production-wise for me individually," Peppers said. "As a team, I don't know - we gave up a lot of yards rushing and passing. We didn't give up a lot of points, and that's the main thing that counts, but as far as yards and getting off the field, we gave up a little bit more than we should."
The game was Peppers' first three-sack effort since Nov. 13, 2006 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, when he had three sacks in a 24-10 win on Monday Night Football.
Peppers is the second Panthers defensive player to earn an honor from the league in the last 10 days. Linebacker and fellow defensive captain Jon Beason was selected as NFC Defensive Player of the Month for October.
