Patriots: Robbed?

Actually there are two bad calls here: To go for it on fourth down deep in Patriots' own territory, and to not challenge the spot of the ball.

Chris Collinsworth immediately began yelling about a "bobble" that took away forward progress, but as the replay shows, there was no bobble, and it looks like the receiver went past the first down marker. (They discuss the spot at the end.)

Epic collapse for the Patriots regardless, of course.

Correction: I was confused on this point, but a commenter fills me in: The Patriots couldn't challenge, as they had used up all of their time outs. If it had happened inside 2:00, the booth guys would have reviewed it, but the play was run at 2:08. No challenge possible, then.
