Watch: Leonard Fournette tosses Johnathan Joseph with ruthless stiff arm
Leonard Fournette has made a career of punishing defenders with his freakish strength, and Houston Texans cornerback Johnathan Joseph got a first-hand look at that on Sunday.
During the first quarter of the Jacksonville Jaguars’ game against the Texans in London, Fournette threw a vicious stiff arm on Joseph while Joseph was trying to tackle him in the open field. Fournette basically swatted Joseph away like a fly before picking up the first down.

Joseph was slow to get up after the play and ended up leaving the game.
That looked a lot like what we saw Saquon Barkley do to a defender a week ago, and plays like that are no surprise from either back. Those are the reasons they’re so difficult to bring down.
