Cowboys Vs. Eagles Score: Michael Vick Touchdown Gives Philly 7-0 Lead

So far, Jerry Jones was right to be fearful of the Eagles. Philadelphia marched down the field 80 yards on just eight plays on the first possession of the game en route to an opening drive score. Michael Vick connected with tight end Brent Celek on a 13 yard touchdown pass to cap off the scoring drive.

Vick completed four of six passes on the scoring drive for 56 yards, including a 28 yard pass to wide receiver Riley Cooper.

It's certainly worrisome that the Eagles marched down the field with ease against the Cowboys. Rob Ryan's defense was shredded by the Eagles in their first meeting earlier this year, and it is certainly not off to a good start here on Christmas eve.
