No, it strikes me that the officials were letting a bit of physicality go and that's the way the game was consistently called. Torrey Smith got held in the first half, no call, corners adjusted and played physically on both sides. That last play was a hope and a prayer and it would have been outrageous to call it after the way the rest of the game was called. And it would have been a BS bailout on a terrible playcall that the defense had dialed up the right blitz for. Easily could have been a blatant late hit on Flacco in the previous drive that would have given Baltimore a fresh set of downs and also could have been a 3 point larger deficit without the Akers dive. Pinning this on the officiating is blatantly desperate.
Also you're forgetting that Jesus commanded this victory.
