The term "completion" normally refers to when the quarterback throws the football down the field, and his intended receiver catches it. You may sometimes hear the announcers refer to this as a "completed pass." If the intended receiver drops it, it's referred to as "incomplete."

The pass was caught by the receiver. If a thrown football is caught anywhere inside the field lines it is called a pass completion
