Why did 5 on the Vikes just stand there? He could have blocked the ball crossing the goal, slapped it out of his hands, something

Yup. Let the eye in the sky take care of it.
based on the ref in the booth's explanation it makes sense. One official watches only the returner, sees the collision, throws the flag. Then others get together and explain he was pushed in and take the flag away.

I always thought it was. I swear I've seen a penalty for blocking a gunner into his teammate's fair catch attempt.
The penalty has to be intended to protect a defenseless player. If you get flagged for crashing into a guy with his head searching the skies to field a punt, it's odd that it would be okay to fling his teammate into him.

It's so much fun when the QBs are mediocre and just throw it up for grabs to athletic WRs.
