The start of the game is exactly what the doctor didn’t order. The Cowboys pulled out the old run-run-pass-short-of-the-sticks for a three and out on the opening possession. After a big punt return by Hunter Renfrow, Derek Carr found Desean Jackson, yes that Desean Jackson, for a 56-yard catch and run score.

But the malaise from Week 11 would go no further. Quarterback Dak Prescott led a phenomenal response drive, finding a slew of backup pass catchers to help things out. First it was Noah Brown, then it was a play where he showed elite patience until Cedrick Wilson came free. Finally, Prescott found backup tight end Sean McKeon for the score.

Dallas missed the extra point and trails 7-6 in the first quarter.
