You've got your terminology wrong;unnecessary roughness is when someone makes a violent hit that is irrelevant to the flow of action.You could try to argue that Boldin's block was an illegal hit...which is also usually a personal foul depending on the context,but it wasn't as 'Clear' to me as you claim it was.It was also at least partly Weddle's fault for not anticipating the block,though I'll grant you that it MAY have violated the rules on contact to the head.Still,it wasn't so painfully obvious that the whole world saw it right away and,if the officials missed it in live action,they can't issue such a penalty on review even if they're checking the play for other issues,such as ball possession or yard placement,and happen to see the hit.We'll see if the commish's office fines Boldin,but I haven't heard any complaints from SD that they were 'robbed' by Boldin's hit....They DID have some doubts whether Rice had the 1st down or not,yet they admitted that the replay wasn't 100% conclusive to the contrary

Edit: The game wouldn't end on that penalty,either,because it wasn't the last play of the game.Since Rice got the first down,SD would have had to accept the penalty to negate the play...and it would've been Ravens' ball,still 4th down,15 yards from the infraction
