What you think is the ball crossing the line is, in fact, Ben's right arm, tape and all. The ball is actually under his chest, a few inches back. If you go back on the game tape (assuming you TiVo'd it), you'll see that he actually loses control of the ball for a split second before landing on it. He then grabs it and places it across the line.
Sorry, but no. See this VIDEO evidence of the same. That's a football.
