Woodley's job in this alignment is to shield off outside containment and force the play to the inside. That's an outside linebackers sole purpose and advantage in playing run-d, to seal the edge. If you look closely, it's Woodley's play to make and Foote would of been in perfect position to make the tackle if Woodley wins the battle on the outside. Wood simply got tad hooked at the last split second, enough for Hillis, an inside runner, to bounce to the outside.

This was more on Woodley than it was Foote. Foote got lost in traffic but it wasn't his outside pursuit to make. Should of been forced to him and if it was, Foote would of been assistance on the tackle.
