If Holiday moves up one more step so he gets in range to make the catch then I think the call might be appropriate as he does have right of way and would be blocked by the Charger, but as it stands I think the refs were right in judging that the muff was caused by him being too far back to secure the ball.
Fox said on Sirius radio that it was not entirely Holiday's fault and that a Denver player blocked the SD player into him. Fox also said Holiday would certainly get another chance.
