Football Possession Pass
What is Possession Pass in Football?
A possession pass in Football is a pass that is thrown to not be risky, so as to prevent an interception or endanger the receiver into a tackle that may force an incompletion or turnover. For example, a deep pass like a hail mary is not a possession pass as it is usually a pass that is up for grabs for any player in the vicinity. However, a dump off pass, such as to a running back as a backup option, would be considered a possession pass.
