Yes, but anytime the QB has a forward motion on his arm, it becomes a pass. A pass which Andy Dalton was able to hold onto the ball enough to release it after his arm went forward. Barwin would have need to knock the ball out while Dalton arm was cocked back in order for it be ruled a fumble. Sorry buddy, but either you saw wrong or ya not understanding the rule then.

Ball out after arm is forward = pass
Ball out while arm is backwards = fumble
Its that simple.
