With 34 interceptions returned for touchdown through 144 games, the NFL is on pace to have its most prolific year in the Pick Six category this decade, eclipsing by three the 58 returned for scores in 2003. Here's a look at some of those who have accomplished the deed this season, beginning with the biggest surprise on the list, the Ravens' Terrell Suggs. Baltimore's big linebacker has already posted two interceptions, both of which he's taken in for scores.
