Coming into a Week Five matchup with the Cowboys in Arlington, Peyton Manning is 4-0 and putting together one of the better seasons for a quarterback in recent memory--or maybe ever. Manning has the Broncos at 4-0, has thrown 16 touchdowns and no interceptions.
Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett, fresh off watching his defense be picked apart by the Chargers’ Philip Rivers, isn’t sure he’s ever seen a quarterback play at such a high level--an impressive statement, considering Garrett spent seven seasons backing up Hall of Famer Troy Aikman.
“He’s playing quarterback at maybe the highest level it’s ever been played,” Garrett said, per ESPN Dallas. “He’s been doing it for 15 years. He’s a fantastic player. His understanding of the game is second to none. His command is second to none. His ability to positively impact the people around him is second to none. Physically, he’s awfully good. He throws it where he wants to over and over and over again. He throws it on time. He’s accurate. He has the ability to make a ton of big plays and very few bad plays. He’s playing at as high of a level as the game has ever been played.”
