|Peppers Vows Bears Pass Rush Will Imporve
|LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP)--Julius Peppers wasn't interested in looking back. All he cared about is what's coming up.
The Chicago Bears visit the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, and the star defensive end made it clear. The pass rush that's been missing so far will be there in force when they go up against Ben Roethlisberger.
The Bears (2-0) lead the NFC North after comeback wins over Cincinnati and Minnesota, thanks to late rallies by the offense. The defense has been as opportunistic as ever and is one off the league lead with six takeaways, but Chicago is getting little pressure up front.
Peppers so far has been a nonfactor with just two tackles and no sacks.
