A completion is a term used in American football when a receiver successfully catches a pass. The three possible outcomes of a pass thrown are completion, incompletion, and interception. Statistically, a completed pass is recorded as a pass completion for the player who throws the ball, and as a reception for the player catching the ball. The yardage gained is the total yardage gained when the play ends, and may be subdivided into Air Yards, the distance from the line of scrimmage to the spot where the ball was caught, and Yards After Catch, the distance from where the ball was caught to where the play ends or where the player carrying the ball is out of bounds.
