If you peel back the curtain to see what’s happening behind all the Deshaun Watson, DeAndre Hopkins and J.J. Watt related news, one of the stalwarts of the Houston Texans defense is quietly setting records and cementing his place in the NFL Hall of Fame.

On Sunday night in front of a nationally televised audience, Joseph, the 7th year Texan, notched his 50th game with multiple pass deflections, surpassing former Tampa Bay Buccaneer Ronde Barber to take the all-time lead.

When asked about it, Joseph’s humility shone through.


Guys like Ronde Barber, Champ Bailey, those are guys I look up to. It means a lot to have this longevity. I can’t take it in right now, but it’s something I can tell my kids one day. At the end of the day, I feel like if you work hard and it continues to be your job, those things will come to you. I don’t really get pumped up as much for things like that. But at the end of the day, just to be in the rare conversation with guys like Ronde and the rest of those guys, it means a lot to me just because of the hard work that I put in.

As far as overall passes defensed, Joseph currently has 192, placing him 3rd on the all-time list per pro-football-reference. According to those numbers, he only needs 12 more to take the all-time lead from Champ Bailey. Joseph currently has 11 on the year. He’s deflected 116 in his time with Houston, the franchise’s record.

The 13 year starter has now played in 196 games, scored 637 solo tackles, forced 7 fumbles, recovered 6 fumbles (and advanced the recovered fumbles 145 yards), scored 30 interceptions and scored 7 touchdowns.
