Raiders vs. 49ers score, results from San Francisco’s rout of Oakland led by Nick Mullens

Will Thursday night be remembered as Nick Mullens’ coming-out party? 

Let’s not go that far yet, but Mullens defied expectations and put on a show in his first NFL game, leading the 49ers to a 34-3 dismantling of the Raiders on “Thursday Night Football.” 

Mullens got off to a hot start, throwing touchdown passes on each of his first two drives. He ended up with three total scores and 262 yards through the air.

WEEK 9 NFL PICKS: Against the spread | Straight up

The complete effort from the 49ers also included 145 rushing yards, 86 of them from Raheem Mostert, who scored his first career touchdown. San Francisco’s defense sacked Derek Carr and AJ McCarron a combined eight times, thwarting most of the Raiders’ infrequent scoring chances in the process.  

This has been a tough season all around for the Raiders, but Thursday’s loss seemed to represent a new low. They posted 242 total yards on offense and their defense looked lifeless at times. 

Things won’t get any easier for them next week. In fact, it will get much more difficult, as they will play the 5-2 Los Angeles Chargers. San Francisco will try to ride the momentum of Mullens through its 11-day break and into a Monday matchup against the Giants. 

Sporting News provided live updates of the 49ers’ decisive win over the Raiders.

11:12 p.m.: The Raiders punt and the 49ers take over. Mullens will just run out the clock.

11:00 p.m.: It appeared that the 49ers had settled for a field goal following the good field position, but an illegal formation penalty on the Raiders on fourth down moves the chains. 

10:55 p.m.: The Raiders come up empty on a third-and-1 and a fourth-and-inches and turn the ball over on downs. 

10:51 p.m.: Derek Carr is done for the night. Backup A.J. McCarron is in and will play the rest of the game. 

10:43 p.m.: Adding insult to injury, Daniel Carlson misses a 45-yard field goal and the Raiders end a 10-play drive with no points.

Kittle follows up that ridiculous catch with the score to make it 24-3!#GoNiners

9:57 p.m.: WHAT. A. CATCH. George Kittle bails out Mullens with a one-handed catch and then takes it 72 yards down to the Raiders’ 6-yard line.

Halftime: 49ers 17, Raiders 3

9:40 p.m.: FIELD GOAL, 49ERS. San Francisco adds to their lead before the half on Robbie Gould’s 39-yard field goal. 49ers 17, Raiders 3. 

9:36 p.m.: The 49ers get 53 yards a third-and-6 on a catch by rookie Richie James and move to the Raiders’ 23.  

9:30 p.m.: Carr is sacked for the fourth time in the game, as a promising drive that included the Raiders longest play of the half — a 25-yard pass to Jalen Richard — comes to a halt. We have hit the two-minute warning. 

9:23 p.m.: First stop of the game for the Raiders as the 49ers can’t recover from a run for a loss by Matt Breida. Oakland will start at its own 6-yard line with 5:46 remaining in the half. 

9:22 p.m.: 49ers fans can breathe a sigh of relief. 

George Kittle is back in the game.

9:16 p.m.: Sacks and penalties have prevented the Raiders from doing anything substantial on offense. They have now punted on their last two drives. 

9:05 p.m.: TOUCHDOWN, 49ERS. Two drives, two touchdowns for Mullens. After nearly getting intercepted on second down, Mullens connects with Kendrick Bourne one play later for another score. The quarterback is nine of 11 for 103 yards. 49ers 14, Raiders 3.

8:57 p.m.: Something to keep an eye on: George Kittle is down with an apparent injury after making a 15-yard catch. 

8:55 p.m.: Mullens’ magic has carried over to the second drive. He finds Garcon to the Raiders’ 27 and is 6 of 7 passing to start the game.

8:40 p.m.: TOUCHDOWN, 49ERS. The 49ers march down the field on just six plays, capped by Mullens’ first career touchdown pass, a 24-yard completion to a wide-open Pierre Garcon. San Francisco made that drive look easy. 49ers 7, Raiders 3.

8:33 p.m.: FIELD GOAL, RAIDERS. A holding penalty pushes the Raiders pack and they are unable to make up the yardage, but Daniel Carlson hits his first field goal as a Raider to give them an early lead. Raiders 3, 49ers 0.

8:28 p.m.: Another quick dumpoff by Carr followed by a 17-yard run on a jet sweep has the Raiders looking surprisingly explosive. They are down to the San Francisco 13.

8:26 p.m.: Oakland seems to have an early gameplan through the air. Carr’s first three passes are all quick screens that have moved the Raiders past midfield.

8:23 p.m.: The Raiders will start with the ball as the opening kick goes for a touchback. 

7:40 p.m.: Mullens could be relying on tight end George Kittle, the 49ers leading receiver, as a safety blanket tonight. 

Getting the @NickMullens to @gkittle46 connection going early. #GoNiners

7:01 p.m.: Both teams have released their inactives. No surprise, but 49ers running back Matt Breida, who has been dealing with an ankle injury, will play tonight.
