Plenty of game balls for 49ers in big win over Raiders

Beat writer back-and-forth How bad will 49ers Raiders get on and off the field

Getting the ball out quickly is something the former excelled at, while Beathard showcased his tendency to hold onto it too long during the 49ers' Week 8 loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

Kittle led all receivers with four catches for 108 yards, while Mostert was the game's top rusher with 86 yards on seven carries. He threw TD passes to Garcon and Kendrick Bourne on the opening two drives and coasted from there to the most lopsided win in this series since San Francisco won the first meeting 38-7 in 1970.

But it was ultimately up to Mullens to take advantage of each situation. They provided little resistance on defense against an undrafted quarterback making his National Football League debut, did nothing offensively after driving for as field goal on the opening drive and put together the most listless performance yet in Gruden's second stint as coach. He's recorded just three sacks in eight games on the season after a combined 15 over the last two years.

As of the start of Battle of the Bay, rookie starter Nick Mullens was unverified on Twitter. McCarron was sacked once.

I could nearly guarantee if the Giants were playing Nick Mullens, that doesn't happen.

"This is awesome", Owens said before the game.

Mostert took a handoff to the left side and was taken down for no gain by defensive tackle Clinton McDonald with 4:38 to go in the third quarter.
