Passes Defensed: 2016 NFL Season

This defensive statistic is credited when an incomplete pass is caused by a defensive player tipping or blocking the ball.  A pass defense is also credited if the defensive player tackles the receiver simulatneous to the arrival of the football (breaking up the catch). It is sometimes referred to as pass deflected or pass breakup.

It is a useful statistic in determining how effective a defensive back is at preventing a catch.
