If you watch the slow mo, the defenders knee is right beside the ball as the knee is down and the ball is barely over the 35. No where near being inside the 34.
I don't think I want the NFL refs trying to reason stuff out. Better by far to just have them call what they can see. If they can't see it, leave it alone.
