Before that gif, Bowe had held up his hand in the gesture normally used by receivers who are intending to go deep. So Palko threw the ball where Bowe indicated he was going. IMO, if Bowe had continued on his course, he would have been on a path to at least prevented the pick, if not catch the ball himself. After all, he had a 6" height advantage on the DB.
