Help Explaining Interface Counters

I have a couple of ports on different PA's showing various interface errors. Just looking for some help deciphering and find a solution for the interface. PA-7000 series running PAN-OS 9.1.13. Output for the "show counter interface" command is below for each interface. Thanks!!
