Little-known QB leads 49ers in rout of Raiders

Little-known QB leads 49ers in rout of Raiders

The Oakland Raiders fell to the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday Night Football and a non-competitive game. While she hasn't publicly addressed her gesture, she is believed to be the first cheerleader to participate in protests former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick started in 2016 against police violence in minority communities and racial inequality in the United States.

The Niners (2-7) couldn't have played much better in snapping a six-game losing streak and winning for just the second time in two years without Jimmy Garoppolo at quarterback.

As the Raiders were sleepwalking through a humiliating loss to the San Francisco 49ers, Sanders took to social media to criticize their lackluster performance.

A lot changed for Nick Mullens on Thursday.

While players denied it after the game, it appeared that at time that they'd quit on their coach, who has traded away the Raiders' 2015 first-round pick in 2015, Amari Cooper, and the 2014 first-round pick, Khalil Mack.

The 49ers dominated from there, going up 7-3 less than three minutes later after Mullens went 3-for-3 on a 75-yard drive, completing his first National Football League pass to Marquise Goodwin for 11 yards and his first TD pass to Garcon at the 6:47 mark of the first period. He threw TD passes to Garcon and Kendrick Bourne on the opening two drives and coasted from there to the most lopsided win in this series since San Francisco won the first meeting 38-7 in 1970. He finished with 86 rushing yards on seven carries and a touchdown. Then added an eighth of backup A.J. McCarron.

The 49ers outgained the Raiders 405-242 in a game that had no turnovers.
