Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner leaped over Cardinals long-snapper Aaron Brewer to block a 39-yard attempt by Chandler Catanzaro with 13:25 left in the second quarter.
Arians contested that Wagner touched Brewer as he hurdled him, which would be a rules violation. A flag was thrown on the play but was later picked up.
Replays showed Wagner making contact with Brewer's back
"He touched him," Arians said after the game. "You saw it. Did you see it? Didn't he touch him? Yeah, he sure did. It sure looked like it to me, but it was not ruled that way, same with the last (field-goal attempt in overtime). He definitely touched him.
"I'm sure I'll talk to the league and we'll get some kind of explanation that is all bull----, like normal."
Wagner had his version of the play after the game, feeling he could jump over Brewer after seeing him "really low" on film.
"I didn't touch him, so I knew I was good," Wagner said. "I didn't feel like I touched him. I knew I cleared him, so I had two feet down and got the kick."
Brewer said he felt "something" on his back during the play and told the officials.
"I don't know if it was him or something, but I did feel something on my back," Brewer said. "I did feel something."
NFL senior vice president of officiating Dean Blandino wrote on Twitter after the play that withholding a penalty was correct because Wagner did not land on a Cardinals player.
"In #SEAvsAZ you have to land on the player for it to be a foul. The block was legal," Blandino tweeted.
The overtime game featured two blocked kicks and missed field goals that would have won the game for both teams on what essentially were chip shots.
Catanzaro had a chance to win the game for the Cardinals with a second field goal in overtime, but his 24-yard attempt with 3:19 remaining bounced off the left upright.
The Seahawks took over, and after two long pass plays from Russell Wilson to Doug Baldwin, Seattle kicker Steven Hauschka shanked a 28-yard field goal wide left with seven seconds left to play in the extra period.
