The first quarterback to find the end zone was third-string Nick Mullens, who tossed an easy touchdown to Pierre Garcon on the 49ers first drive, taking a 7-3 lead after the first quarter.

"Well, last night we weren't in our nickel defense very much", Gruden said Friday, via NBC Sports.

It's been two years since former 49er Colin Kaepernick first took a knee as a silent protest against social injustice. We've seen him do it in practice.

The Oakland Raiders waived Bruce Irvin on Saturday after the team's leading pass rusher had his playing time reduced significantly in recent weeks. "I've heard a lot of negativity over the last six, seven months and rightfully so". "Remember we're a 4-3 team, we're not a 3-4".

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.

Carr was pulled early in the fourth quarter with the game out of hand, with A.J. McCarron mopping up. I'm frustrated. We'll try to solve that as soon as possible. The offensive line looked lost and the poor pass protection did not help Derek Carr either, who was sacked four times in the first half.

Who could they be targeting with that first overall pick?

"This is awesome", Owens said before the game. I've been in the organization for two years and I was trying to just learn as much as I could, preparing like I'm the starter every week.
