At the time of that play, I figured Watt would get flagged for hitting the QB below the knees.
The refs must have thought that a hand swiping the foot is not the same as it would be if that same defender is tackling his full body weight INTO the QB's legs.
Still, I really REALLY thought he would get a flag there on that play. Maybe it was a make-up call or something? I dunno.
