All four starting defensive linemen recorded at least a half sack against Michael Vick. Matt Toeaina recorded the first sack of his career while Henry Melton now has at least a half sack in three straight games. Julius Peppers had a 16-yard sack on third-and-goal from the 3 in the second quarter. Anthony Adams was credited with a sack when he stripped Michael Vick in the third quarter.
Chasing Vick around the field was nothing new for Julius Peppers, who played against the scrambling quarterback often when both were playing for teams in the NFC South.
"You all probably did not pay a lot of attention to the Panthers and the Falcons back in the day when we used to play all the time," Peppers said. "We always had those types of [situations], me and him in the open field. Him running, I'm chasing. It was just like old times."
