Peppers speaks up: Every game, coach Mike McCarthy gives one of the captains an opportunity to speak to the team before the game. On Sunday night, it was veteran outside linebacker Julius Peppers’ turn. He was the defensive captain against his former team, and several players noted afterward that it made an impact. Tight end Andrew Quarless said Peppers spoke about what it was like to be on the other side of the Packers-Bears rivalry.
