Peppers ready for the rematch with the Eagles

"Honestly, the first time we played them I don't think they got our best shot," said Peppers. "I don't think we played well at all the first game. I think if we go out and play to our capabilities, we have got a great shot at winning."

Carolina defensive end Julius Peppers is ready for the rematch against the Philadelphia Eagles, last time he faced them the Panthers lost 25-16 and Peppers only had one pressure and four tackles.

"Honestly, the first time we played them I don't think they got our best shot," said Peppers. "I don't think we played well at all the first game. I think if we go out and play to our capabilities, we have got a great shot at winning."

Peppers' has been on a role in the last six games of the season he had five sacks and 18 pressures.

"I have just been having more fun lately I had fun the whole season, but the past couple weeks, I have been letting it loose and trying to play my game. I've been getting better over the last couple of weeks," said Peppers. "The last five or six weeks, I have stepped my game up a little bit."

To get to the Super Bowl the Panthers will have to face Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb, one of the League's toughest players to contain.

"When he gets out of pocket, he can throw too. So we just got to try to affect him any way we can. He is a big part of their offense with the things he can do, but they have other weapons too," said Peppers. "They have big receivers with good speed. Duce (Staley) is running hard. So is (Correll) Buckhalter. They have weapons. We just have to key in on all of them."
