I may be wrong on this (someone please correct me if I am), but I was always under the impression that to be a "horse collar tackle" the defender did not necessarily have to grasp the shoulder pads, but the back of the jersey in the neck area was also protected.  I couldn't quickly find the exact wording, but I have seen some writings that the player has to be tackled immediatly following the grasping of jersey or shoulder pads, which could be why there was no penalty. (I admittedly have not rewatched or seen any video of the play since Saturday)
