Predicting the Future... refs can do it

Not sure if anyone elsed noticed this, but on the "taunting" call against Brandon Merriweather, the ref threw the flag prior to any "taunting" on the field. In my opinion, he thought it was pass interference on Brandon. However, when he returned to the ref huddle to explain his call, they all disagreed with him, and rightfully so. However, instead of picking up the flag and letting the teams play, they decided to create a penalty to save themselves. And it was a huge call, which led to the game getting tied up with 5 minutes left.
