In isolation, on that one play, yep...a flag should have been thrown. Ball in the air, and the defenders contact was totally outweighing the recievers contact.
However, I think the refs had a poor night, and you are right...they weren't throwing flags all night long, no sense in throwing on on the deciding play. At least they were consistent...which as a coach, I would much rather have vs. an inconsistent crew. I love the 49ers staff, but those last three plays were horrible calls.
