That seems like a lifetime ago for some in Raiders Nation, which was seething Thursday night after watching the Raiders get manhandled by the 49ers in a battle of one-win teams.
The former undrafted free agent out of Favre's alma mater Southern Mississippi finished 16 for 22 in place of the injured C.J. Beathard and had a 151.9 passer rating, the highest for a quarterback with at least 15 attempts in an National Football League debut since the 1970 merger. He completed 16 of 22 passes for 262 yards and three touchdowns.
An unidentified cheerleader for the San Francisco 49ers was photographed kneeling during the national anthem at Thursday evening's game between the 49ers and Oakland Raiders at Levi's Stadium, CBS San Francisco reports. The 49ers also ran for 143 yards, none more glaring than Raheem Mostert's 52-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter. It was maybe the worst loss of the season for the Raiders.
San Francisco defeated Oakland 34-3.
Oakland has now lost four games in a row, getting outscored by 85 points during the skid, and are just playing out the string in a season that began with optimism because of Gruden's return.
Carr was pulled early in the fourth quarter with the game out of hand, with A.J. McCarron mopping up.
Mullens' performance was so notable that Twitter awarded him a verified account during the course of the game.
