Matt Rhule compares Dak Prescott to Peyton Manning, Drew Brees
If you want to find someone who is a big Dak Prescott fan, look no further than Matt Rhule.

Those are some serious compliments. And Rhule noted the stats back it up; Prescott is the second-fastest QB this season in getting the ball out of his hand.
Through three games, Prescott has passed for 878 yards, six touchdown passes and two interceptions this season. His 77.5 completion percentage leads the league.
Rhule will be trying to put a dent into those stats on Sunday.
