This was definitely true at the end with the last field goal. I think they trust the defense and don't want to risk a TO there (this is me being charitable).
I don't know why they haven't gone downfield more, part of me worries the coaching staff doesn't think Palmer has the accuracy to do it consistently anymore. Will be interesting to see if they open it up more against what looks to be a bad Carolina team next week.
