What Is The Definition Of Air Yards In Football?

1. This statistic measures the total distance that the football travels past the line of scrimmage during a pass before it is caught. This is separated from the Yards After the Catch (YAC) statistic in order to better demonstrate a quarterback’s passing ability. Taking the air yards plus the YAC gives you the total yards gained during a passing play.
