Nick Mullens: "It was my opportunity to prove that I can play"

The 49ers started third-string quarterback Nick Mullens and torched the Raiders' secondary. For one he threw his first, and second, and third career touchdowns in his National Football League debut.

The San Francisco 49ers are expected to be without Raheem Mostert for the remainder of the season after he suffered a broken right forearm against the Oakland Raiders on Thursday night.

The Niners (2-7) couldn't have played much better in snapping a six-game losing streak and winning for just the second time in two years without Jimmy Garoppolo at quarterback. Instead, the undrafted quarterback threw for 262 passing yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions. The movement swelled to include dozens of players last season but their ranks have shrunk this season, with Carolina Panthers safety Eric Reid and two Miami Dolphins players being the most notable protestors now in the NFL.

Kittle led all receivers with four catches for 108 yards, while Mostert was the game's top rusher with 86 yards on seven carries.

How does it compare to other statues? "Patel had worked along with Gandhiji and strengthened the Congress party". With all due respect to him (Patel), we feel Mahatma Gandhi is the tallest leader of Indian politics.

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

Mullens performed so well that he even got his Twitter account verified during the game.

The 49ers outgained the Raiders 405-242 in a game that had no turnovers.
