Doesn't really matter, but Davis wasn't trailing Casey. Casey was being covered by a LB. He lost him somewhere in the middle of the field. That corner came off his man & had time to cut under Casey to pick that ball.
In other words, not only did he underthrow it, but he put way to much air under it... or threw it way to late. Had he thrown it earlier, or with less air under it, it would have been a different story. That was a bad throw for many reasons.
