The Carolina Panthers (3-0) are set to put their undefeated record to the test against the 2-1 Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, a big test for the upstart Panthers.

And head coach Matt Rhule hasn't been withholding in his praise of opposing quarterback Dak Prescott.

The numbers back up Rhule's assessment. Through three games, he's thrown for 828 yards, six touchdowns and just two interceptions, completing an absurd 77.5 percent of his passes. Translated to a full 17-game season, that comes out to 4,692 passing yards, 34 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.

Hardly shabby numbers. And a major test for a Carolina defense that has started the year on fire.

To this point, the Panthers are giving up the fewest yards in football (191 per game) and the second-fewest points (10). Starting off the season with the New York Jets and Houston Texans in the first three weeks has helped.
