With the Dallas Cowboys desperately trying to avoid a 1-3 start to the season, Jason Garrett's offense has finally come alive.

Although Matthew Stafford and the Detroit Lions are known for being a second-half team, they have their hands full in Dallas. Through two quarters, the Cowboys lead 13-10.

Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott will have to keep their feet on the gas, as the Lions offense could turn potentially turn this into a late shootout.

However, ESPN believes the Cowboys will finish off strong and improve to 2-2, giving them a 71.8 percent chance of winning.

ESPN's Football Power Index is giving the Cowboys a 75.2 percent chance to win this game. Dallas gets the ball to start the second half against Detroit.

Elliott is currently leading the charge for Dallas with 100 yards from scrimmage and a touchdown.

If Demarcus Lawrence can continue putting pressure on Stafford, the Cowboys should be in excellent shape for the second half. After all, they're already shutting down Detroit's running game.

The Cowboys and Lions will resume play shortly. The game is available on FOX.
