he is unbelievable. and the raiders just flat out quit on jon gruden. this was embarrassing. oh, this is cute, though. nice scene at levi's stadium the first drive of mullens career. pierre garcon, the most open he's been in his life. mullens has a trophy for his mantle. mullens throws it right to daryl worley. that's what your hands are for. next play, you know what's going to happen here. mullens goes four yards to kendrick borne. touchdown, and the kid from southern miss, threw for 262 yards and three touchdowns. derek carr sacked six times in this game. i know the raiders are banged up on the offensive line, but that. they're doing kung fu kick out there. raheem 52 yard score. where is the defense? like there is nobody within five yards to put a hand on him.
unfortunately, moster broke his arm later in the game. otherwise all niners. gruden, what are we doing out here? 34-3. they're 2-7. the raiders, 1-7. >> i was on edge until the clock hit zero, to be honest. i was just ready to win and ready to keep going. you know, we were all banded together and ready to go. we're excited. we're ready to attack. i thought we did that well. he sent me a message before the game. he said no pressure, just be yourself. and that's what try to do before the game. and during the game and so just try to stay calm out there and lead the offense. >> i've heard a lot of negativity over the last six or seven months, and rightfully so. but we're going to build a championship football team here, and i know a lot of people as players, as fans, and, you know, just in general want to be a part of this. >> really? to the tank. nice lid. sharks, it's the 13th game. they've scored the first goal in 11 of them. kevin le bank, his first goal in
ten games. the problem is holding on the the lead. anthony duclair on the wraparound. in the second, seth jones redirecting off his skate. they say he did not kick it in. so that counts. nick gets behind the defense. backhand, his fourth, and the sharks fall 4-1. abc 7 sports sponsored by river rock casino. wouldn't it be great if every one of us could have a moment like nick mullens where you're just a star, where nobody is expecting anything and you're just the man. on the other side for jon gruden, he keeps saying
