Dak Prescott might idolize Tom Brady now, but it wasn’t always like that for the Dallas Cowboys quarterback.
Speaking to NBC Sports’ Maria Taylor, Prescott says he grew up a huge fan of Peyton Manning, and as such, disliked Brady (via The Athletic’s Jon Machota). He added that it didn’t take long for him to develop a high level of respect and admiration for Brady, though.
Brady and Prescott will face off Thursday night as the Cowboys travel to Tampa Bay to face the Bucs in the first game of the NFL’s 2021 regular season.
