NEW YORK The Dallas Cowboys wrested the title of the NFL's most valuable franchise from the rival Redskins, knocking Washington off the top of the list for the first time in eight years, according to Forbes magazine's annual survey.

Thanks to a $1 billion stadium set to open in 2009, the Cowboys' value increased by 28 percent by far the largest jump among NFL teams this year to $1.5 billion. They climbed from third to first in the rankings, leapfrogging the Redskins ($1.467 billion) and the New England Patriots ($1.199 billion).
he new stadium added about $350 million to the Cowboys' value. Jerry Jones can now boast that he owns the world's most valuable sports franchise, according to Forbes.

The Houston Texans and the Philadelphia Eagles again round out the top five and remain the only other franchises worth more than $1 billion

The skinny
The losses keep piling up (56 in five years), but fans continue to fill Reliant Stadium. The stadium is a gold mine for owner Robert McNair. It's home to the biggest naming rights deal in US sports—a 30-year, $300 million deal with Reliant Energy. The stadium is home to 185 luxury suites and 8,400 club seats that generate more than $40 million a year in revenue. This offseason represented an end of an era when the Texans let go its franchise quarterback and first ever draft pick, David Carr.

That's why McNair had to get rid of Carr, McNair couldn't ignore the bottom line any longer. Now that we have Schaub I expect that number to shoot right back up
