Little-known QB leads 49ers in rout of Raiders

However, Mullens proved to be the antidote for what has ailed the 49ers for much of the 2018 season, as the rookie quarterback oozed confidence throughout the contest.

If this wasn't the low point of Oakland's season, then these last eight games (including two against the Chiefs) are going to be brutal for Raiders fans. For one he threw his first, and second, and third career touchdowns in his National Football League debut.

Mostert suffered a broken right forearm and had to exit the game.

Of Mack, a superbly talented player, Gruden has said that the defense wasn't that good even with him on the field - and without him, it's just abysmal. McCarron was sacked once behind a banged-up offensive line. Mullens and the Niners' offense quickly responded to Oakland's opening field goal with a pair of touchdown scores, and the game quickly got out of hand for the visiting Raiders.




Carr was sacked four times in the first half for the first time in his career as the Raiders struggled to provide much protection against a 49ers defence that has not generated much pressure all year. Owens was voted into the Hall of Fame earlier this year but skipped the induction ceremony in Canton, Ohio, to hold his own celebration at his college in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

"This is awesome", Owens said before the game.

Mostert was carrying the ball in the third quarter when he was tripped up on what appeared to be a routine play.
