That wasn't a "panicky" decision at all. Capers was just trying to get within a field goal from evening the score. If you look at the scenarios it makes sense.
A) Kick the PAT, you're down 4 points and need a touchdown to go ahead.
B) Go for 2, fail, you're down 5, yet you still need a touchdown to go ahead.
C) Go for 2, succeed, you're down 3 and within a field goal of evening things up.
In that case going for 2 isn't a very big risk, even in the 4th quarter.
