On the previous line of scrimmage, where the last play took place.
In American and Canadian Football, a ball can be passed forward from behind the line of scrimmage. If the ball falls on the ground it is called an incomplete pass. That means no one caught it. It can also be called an incomplete. That is a short way of saying "It is an incomplete forward pass."
it means the receiver dropped the ball
When the quarterback throws the ball to the receiver and the receiver doesn't catch it.
When there is an Incomplete pass, the game clock is stopped, the ball returned to the previous line of scrimmage-aka Los- (before the incomplete pass), and the game clock does not resume until the snap of the ball. The play clock, however is not stopped and will resume when the official places the ball on the Los.
