With Dak Prescott back and fully healthy, the Dallas Cowboys offense picked up where they left off prior to his season-ending injury in 2020. And, ahead of Dallas' Week 4 matchup with the Carolina Panthers, head coach Matt Rhule is noticing.

The Panthers head coach recently spoke to media regarding Prescott's 2021 performance thus far, and offered the highest of praise. He even compared the Cowboys' gunslinger to two of the best quarterbacks to ever do it: Peyton Manning and Drew Brees.

Rhule complimented nearly every facet of Dak's game, from his play calling at the line of scrimmage, to his ability to get the ball out quickly, and even his chemistry with his wide receivers.

The stat books back up how dynamic Dallas' offense has been with Prescott back under center. In fact, the Cowboys rank all over the top 10 of NFL offensive metrics, including fifth in yards gained per game (416.7), sixth in points per game (30.0), seventh in quarterback rating (110.1), and 10th in passing yards per game (277.3).

Dallas will face its toughest competition yet against Carolina's league-leading defense (191.0 yards allowed per game). Heading into this Week 4 matchup, the Cowboys are 4.5-point home favorites on FanDuel Sportsbook.
