However, I would have thought that if you are going to do it you'd be better off launching a deep pass down the field and hoping for a long completion/defensive PI.

If it's a free play you may as well try and go for a big gain knowing that any INT will be coming back. Maybe there wasn't enough time to communicate that to a WR?
I think the bigger issue is that there is no time to call a protection. The idea is to just snap the ball, get your penalty, and don't risk Peyton getting steamrolled because you didn't have an protection in place.
