The extra player(s) were running off the field, that's why PM rushed the snap, essentially knowing it would be a free play.

(of course it took a challenge to confirm this)

So it fell into what enjolras described as being the rule: if the players are aware that they are on the field and thus trying to get off of it, the refs wait and allow the play to occur. If the D has 11+ players and don't seem to be aware of it, instead just lined up in formation that way, then they whistle the play dead.
