Is it still considered bad form to talk politics during a social gathering?

CHICAGO (AP) _ Charles Tillman and Major Wright returned interceptions for touchdowns early in the third quarter, and Chicago picked off Matthew Stafford four times.

The four interceptions by Stafford matched his season total entering the game and helped knock the Lions (6-3) into a second-place tie with Chicago in the NFC North. He was also involved in a skirmish that led to an ejection of Chicago’s D.J. Moore early in the fourth quarter.

By then, the Bears (6-3) had locked up their fourth straight win thanks to a dominant defensive effort and another punt return for a touchdown by Devin Hester, who ran one back 82 yards. That extended his NFL record to 12.

SEAHAWKS 22, RAVENS 17

SEATTLE (AP) _ Steven Hauschka matched a franchise record with five field goals, Marshawn Lynch scored on a 1-yard plunge and Seattle forced three turnovers.

A week after staking claim to the lead of the AFC North with a thrilling last-second win at Pittsburgh, the Ravens flopped on the West Coast in an all too similar fashion to letdowns twice already this season.

After routing Pittsburgh in its opener, the Ravens (6-3) were dominated in a loss at Tennessee. Just a few weeks ago, after an impressive win over AFC South-leading Houston, the Ravens lost to Jacksonville.

Lynch finished with 109 yards rushing and another 58 receiving for Seattle (3-6).

JAGUARS 17, COLTS 3

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) _ Blaine Gabbert threw for a touchdown and Maurice Jones-Drew ran for another score to keep Indianapolis winless.

Jones-Drew carried 25 times for 114 yards and became the second player in franchise history to top 6,000 yards rushing. It was the first road win of the season for Jacksonville (3-6).

Indianapolis remained the NFL’s last winless team, dropping to 0-10 for the first time since 1997.

Gabbert hooked up with Jarrett Dillard on an 11-yard TD pass late in the third quarter to break a 3-3 tie, and Jones-Drew capped an 8-yard drive with a 3-yard touchdown run late in the fourth to seal it.

TEXANS 37, BUCCANEERS 9

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) _ Matt Schaub threw for two long touchdowns, while Arian Foster, Ben Tate and Derrick Ward each ran for scores to help AFC South-leading Houston.
