  • San Francisco 49ers quarterback Nick Mullens fumbles as he is sacked in a preseason game earlier this year. More

Mullens, who had never thrown an National Football League pass before Thursday night, was out of his mind, going 16-for-22 for 262 yards and three touchdowns.

Heading into the second quarter is was the same script that we saw in the first quarter and really all season long: the Raiders defense is just bad. The Niners were winless since Garoppolo went down, as the team went 0-6 with C.J. Beathard under center.

With San Francisco leading 31-3, most of the eyes in the stadium were removed from the field of play.

San Francisco 49ers' Pierre Garcon celebrates with Nick Mullens after a 24-yard touchdown against the Oakland Raiders, at Levi's Stadium, in Santa Clara, Calif., on November 1, 2018.

Gruden did not envision his return to Oakland including a 1-7 record with some of the worst performances in the NFL.

Last January, both Arsenal and Manchester United chose to get rid of a player each. The Arsenal man has been plagued by injury problems in recent times.

Mostert suffered a broken right forearm and had to exit the game.

Carr has completed 72 percent of his passes through eight weeks, including a 72.7-percent completion rate for 171 yards against San Francisco. He has had little help versus the pass rush and is playing with an offensive line that gave up eight sacks Thursday.

It's going to be a tough road ahead for Gruden, Carr and the rest of the silver and black.

Going into this game, fans of both teams had plenty of reasons to be frustrated.

Carr was sacked four times in the first half for the first time in his career as the Raiders struggled to provide much protection against a 49ers defense that has not generated much pressure all year. They will have a chance to pick up some momentum against NY before travelling to Tampa Bay.
