Peppers had a major hand in the win, recording an interception on Buffalo’s first offensive drive. It was the second big play Peppers has made in two weeks, after recording the big hit that led to a pop-up interception against the Las Vegas Raiders the previous week.
Peppers has had a strong season overall, recording 46 tackles, a forced fumble and an interception. He has been one of the bright spots on a Patriots defense that has been beaten down with injuries.
He also managed to give an inspiring post-game speech, as the Patriots prepare for the Miami Dolphins next week.
“Hey fellas, that’s how you respond, man,” Peppers said. “The character of a man is not what you do in times of comfort, but how you respond in adversity. Way to not flinch, way to not waver, man. That’s how you win a game.”
