No. After making a reception of a forward pass all yards, gained or lost, after the catch are considered receiving yards to the receiver and passing yards to the quarterback. EXAMPLE: The line of scrimmage is the offense's 10 yard line. The quarterback throws a forward pass that is completed at the offense's 15 yard line and the receiver runs to the offense's 30 yard line before being tackled. The receiver is credited with 20 receiving yards and the quarterback is credited with 20 passing yards. EXAMPLE 2: The line of scrimmage is the offense's 10 yard line. The quarterback throws a forward pass that is completed at the offense's 12 yard line and the receiver runs laterally/backwards to the offense's 8 yard line before being tackled. The receiver is credited with -2 receiving yards and the quarterback is credited with -2 passing yards.

Receiving yards are the amount of yards past the line of scrimmage or behind the line of scrimmage a player gets after catching a pass before they are tackled or knocked out of bounds. Example1: Team A has possession of the ball at Team A's 20 yard line. A player from Team A catches a pass from the quarterback and is tackled/knocked out of bounds at Team A's 36 yard line. The player that caught the pass is credited with 16 receiving yards and the quarterback is credited with 16 passing yards. Example 2: Team A has possession of the ball at Team A's 20 yard line. A player catches a pass and is tackled/knocked out of bounds at Team A's 17 yard line. The player that caught the pass is credited with -3 receiving yards and the quarterback is credited with -3 passing yards.

How is forward pass yardage computed-- If the ball is thrown 10 yards and the receiver runs for 20 more yards is the quarterback credited with a 30 yard pass?

In the NFL, pass yardage is computed differently for team stats and for individual stats.For individual stats, the yardage is computed by determining where the play ends in relation to the line of scrimmage when the play began. If a forward pass is completed and the receiver is tackled downfield 15 yards from the line of scrimmage where the play began, the quarterback is credited with 15 passing yards. If a forward pass is completed and the receiver is tackled 3 yards behind the line of scrimmage where the play began, the quarterback is credited with -3 passing yards.For team stats, the above also applies. However, yardage lost to sacks is subtracted from a team's passing yardage total where it is not subtracted from a quarterback's passing yardage total. If, in a game, a quarterback throws for 250 yards and is sacked 2 times for 15 yards lost, the QB's passing yardage total will be 250 and the team's passing yardage total will be 235.
