3 Stars: Which Cowboys overcame pitchy team performance to belt out win No. 12?

The Cowboys were supposed to roll into Nashvegas and play the gimpy Titans like a fiddle. But Mike Vrabel’s band had a different tune lined up. Coming in at 11-4 and with a chance to still compete for the NFC’s top seed,  Dallas found themselves in a nail-biter for most of the night against a quarterback who’d been in town for eight days and a pair of Hall of Fame hopefuls named Julius Chestnut and Racey McMath.

The Dak Prescott turnover conversation will linger on, despite two of the three credited to him not really being his fault. But the signal-caller still found enough rhythm late in the set to engineer a two-touchdown win. (Of course, the Titans shooting themselves in the honky-tonk boots with 10 penalties for 124 yards helped.)

In the end, the Cowboys escaped the Music City with a 27-13 win that won’t go down as one of their greatest hits, but still sounds plenty sweet the morning after. Here are the biggest rockstars of Week 17.
