The Cowboys and the Giants both came into tonight's Sunday Night Football game on NBC needing a victory to avoid an 0-2 start to the 2018 NFL regular season. So far, it's Dallas that is winning that battle.

We're now two quarters into tonight's game and the Cowboys have been the more-impressive squad. Unsurprisingly, the Cowboys are the team that's in the lead.

The Cowboys are up on the Giants, 10-0, after two quarters of play. Dallas scored on a 60-plus yard bomb to open the scoring early, and had another field-goal drive, but there hasn't been a ton of action since.

Jason Garrett's defense has done a nice job putting pressure on Eli Manning and the Giants' offensive stars, Odell Beckham Jr. and Saquon Barkley, have been bottled up.

Will the Cowboys be able to hold on for a win in the second half? ESPN certainly thinks so.

The Football Power Index is quite confident in Dallas' ability to win this game. Here's the full prediction:

ESPN's FPI gives the Cowboys an 84.0 percent chance to win this game.
