I know, I know...the game is long over. I wouldn't have given them any thought, until I saw ProFootballTalk.com ripping these two officiating calls/non-calls.
The first safety - clearly, there was a receiver within the throwing area.
Peterson takes off helmet after final touchdown - Where was the 15 yard penalty?
It seems the VP of Officiating is also pissed about the Peterson Helmet non-call: Link
“I can’t figure out why anything wasn’t done about that,” Pereira told Randy Cross and Peter King, “but I will say this: It frustrates me that we didn’t do anything about that. You can’t take your helmet off either to argue a call or to celebrate. If you’re in a time out period or a measurement or a challenge there are times when you can take your helmet off on the field. Or when you’re nearing your team area when you approach the bench. But when you score like that, when you remove your helmet you should be flagged. Or when you take off your helmet to argue with the officials you should be flagged, too, and it frustrates me, quite frankly, that we didn’t do that.”
