The Patriots and the Lions are two quarters into tonight's Sunday Night Football game on NBC. It's been a pretty surprising contest so far.

Detroit stormed out to an early lead against New England and the Lions have looked like the better team through the first half.

It's Detroit 13, New England 3 at halftime.

The Patriots entered tonight's game as a sizable favorite, but Tom Brady and Co. will need to rally from a second-half deficit in order to avoid a 1-2 start to the season.

Does ESPN think the Pats can do it? Here's the prediction from ESPN's Football Power Index.

ESPN's Football Power Index gives the Lions an 83.3 percent chance to win tonight's game against the Patriots.

A score prediction for Patriots vs. Lions.

The Lions and the Patriots should begin the second half in about 10 minutes.

The game is on NBC.
