Mullens, who began the season on the 49ers' practice squad, connected with Pierre Garcon from 24 yards out in the first quarter, Kendrick Bourne from 4 yards in the second period and George Kittle from 5 yards in the third quarter en route to a 16-for-22, 262-yard performance. He had 7 rushes for 86 yards and a touchdown.

After the game, Gruden said "I know it's not looking pretty right now". We've seen him do it in practice.

Kyle Shanahan said he wasn't told whether Mostert was done for the year, but added, "I would assume so with a broken arm". Our whole team played very well.

Across the bay, the 1-6 Raiders seemed to have waived the white flag before the season even started, by trading once-in-a-lifetime talent Khalil Mack to the Bears.

Jon Gruden still has faith in his Raiders.

In what was perhaps the worst prime-time matchup in National Football League history, only the Raiders played down to expectations.

Gould's second field goal, a 25-yarder with 3:59 remaining, capped the scoring.

The San Francisco defense, meanwhile, harassed Oakland's Derek Carr into seven sacks on a 16-for-21 night. McCarron was sacked once.

The 49ers, who struggled against the Cardinals, looked like a playoff team against the Raiders.

Former Niners receiver Terrell Owens was presented his Hall of Fame ring at a halftime ceremony. Owens said he was upset at the voters who made him wait three years for the honour, saying he believed they brought in off-field issues into their deliberations instead of focusing exclusively on what Owens did as a player. "This is an opportunity to give something to the fans".
