Plays where you run with the ball after a lateral from a teammte don't count as receptions but the yardage does count.

In this case, he had a 74 yard catch and must have had a 37 yard run after another receiver caught a pass and pitched it to him.

There are guys in the history books who have 0 receptions (or rushing attempts or kick returns, etc) but have yardage.

Did not know that.

Is that still the case now? I always assumed a backwards-lateral was scored as a "fumble" and any resulting yards as FR yards.
