Comparing webfilter and antivirus

I have already configured SSL Inspection and Web Filter and Antivirus on Fortigate in proxy mode.
Then I tested Operation Verification using EICAR .
link eicar.com(HTTP)was detected by Antivirus but eicar.com.txt(HTTP)was detected by Webfilter.
Why was it detected by a different engine?

    Hi, can we test Avira antivirus on this ? Does this detect HTTP Proxy ?

    Webfiltering happens before AV checks, so the site would of been tagged as malicious before the AV engine could check it.
