The missed PI wasn't reviewable, but determining who had possession of the ball in the end zone was reviewable.

"In the end zone, a ruling of a simultaneous catch is reviewable. That is not the case in the field of play, only in the end zone."

Meh, all I can hope is that the Giants, Eagles, and/or the Cowboys are the next teams to get screwed over.
