Watching the video of the landing as it happened. I went back and looked again, and it does look like it deaccelerated in the last 2 seconds before the dust hit.

The dust kicks up right before it lands as jets of air cushion the landing at the last second. So it looks worse than it is. The Russians use a similar systems...but with rockets if i recall.
