LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) - Lance Briggs sure doesn't look like he's slowing down.

The Chicago Bears' Pro Bowl linebacker still has plenty of spring in his step, and that was clear during Monday's game at Dallas.

Briggs certainly hit the pedal when he picked off Tony Romo, returning an interception 74 yards for a touchdown in a 34-18 victory. For the most part, the Bears' defense has been going full throttle this season, despite all the questions about the aging core.

The Bears (3-1) play at Jacksonville (1-3) on Sunday.
