A lateral is a pass that is thrown sideways to or behind the player that throws the pass. This is the opposite of a 'forward pass' which is a pass thrown downfield, or in front of, the player that throws the pass. American football rules state that only one forward pass can be thrown per play. However, there is no limit as to the number of lateral passes that can be thrown per play.
A player who is behind the ball cannot be in an offside position. A player that is in an offside position at the moment of the kick would be guilty of an offense if he runs back to collect a pass, even if the pass was backward.
A pass completion.
When the quarterback throws the ball to the receiver and the receiver doesn't catch it.

Kick the ball to another player in your team.
A Forward Pass is passing the football to a teammate in front of you. A Lateral Pass is the player carrying the ball passing the football on side or behind him/her.
The Quarterback typically throws the ball to the receiver. However, any player on the Offense can attempt a forward pass.
In football, I would say a wide receiver.
