We are no math wizzes at Birds Nest but pregame when Cowboys owner Jerry Jones (net worth $2 billion, according to Forbes) and Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie (net worth $1 billion, according to Forbes) chatted, about $3 billion worth of NFL owners were on the field at the Linc.

Something else big was on the field as Cowboys defensive Coordinator Rob Ryan's big mouth (he called the Eagles the "All-Hype Team") would be proven right or wrong Sunday Night.

Michael Vick and the Eagles offense quickly showed that Ryan was wrong. The Birds jumped out to a 24-0 halftime lead on their way to 34 points and 495 total yards of offense.

Vick was just impressive with his arm completing 75 percent (21 of 28) of his passes for 279 yards and two TDs. Good for a 129.9 passer rating.

TE Brent Celek was Vick's top target hauling in a team-high seven catches.

Celek also led the Birds with 94 receiving yards and a score -- some of those yards were gained by simply running over defenders.

He was also intercepted by Nnamdi Asomugha who made an athletic play to pick off the pass.

Nnamdi also made Dallas wideout Dez Bryant virtually non-existent. Bryant caught just three passes for 28 yards on the night.

The Eagles defensive line also got to Romo four times as Trent Cole (1) and Jason Babin (2) each recorded sacks.

He might not look it here but Andy Reid had to be happy with how his 3-4 Eagles played against Jason Garrett's 3-4 Cowboys.

Vick can't sit back and relax because the Eagles host the 4-3 Bears next Monday night.
