The first interception was a great play made by the defender to get a hand in and tip the ball up.
Wasn't Cassel's fault. Wasn't Bowe's fault.
The second interception was a bad throw. The ball was thrown high and to the back shoulder. A back shoulder throw on a crossing route going the other way. Horrible ball placement. Bowe had to leave his feet. That was definitely on Cassel.
If I'm remembering right, Cassel was staring down Bowe on the first INT and drew a lot of defenders into Bowes direction. In result, the DB had more than enough flexibility to make that play.
