6:01 pm
we hear from some of the dwindling survivors of the attack on pearl harbor. good evening. welcome to a special post game edition of channel 2news. i'm ken wayne. >> and i'm heather holmes. they haven't met on the football field since 2011, but today, the 49ers battled it out with the oakland raiders. christien kafton is at o.co coliseum now. >> reporter: sheriff's deputies and police were on alert here today. we did see a few incidents going on inside and outside the coliseum. we did see a few incidents of violence, including one that happened just a few feet away from me. we saw about a half dozen alameda county sheriffs deputies show up on scene in that incident within a minute. raiders say both men who were fighting were detained and neither was allowed inside.
6:02 pm
we saw a number of men in custody. the raiders say that was their plan, zero tolerance policy towards any violence. a quick response, and a lot of hard work to maintain that friendly rivalry. this is clearly a long-standing bay area rivalry. most fans say it was all in fun. this was the 13th meeting of these two teams through regular season play. before the game, we saw a lot of fans really enjoying the rare treat of raiders and 49ers playing, a lot of good-natured teasing. we saw big crowds of fans from both teams mingling, partying, rallying. most say it was easy to get along. raiders fans go home happy tonight, but 49ers fans are taking the loss hard. >> i am from oakland, california, and i got to hear these raider fans' mouths till the next type of the battle of the bay. >> been a tough season all around, but to come and get the win today, it couldn't be any better. we've been coming down for
6:03 pm
years and years and this year has just been fantastic, especially with the win for the raiders in the end. now, as you can tell here, the game is long since over. crowds are starting to dissipate. we talked to a couple niner fans who say they are already looking forward to the next meeting of these two teams. back to you. >> the battle of the bay turned out to be one of the high points of the raiders season. >> good for the raiders. not so good for the 49ers. maybe the last chance for the 49ers to make a run at the playoffs. >> one of our crew people talking just before the game said if jim haw bar was auditioning for the raiders coaching job, kind of flopped. are you sure the raiders want what they saw? any part of today? but a lot's going to happen during the 49ers' off season, but still, they have three games to go and their playoff hopes, even though they were in the east bay today, hopes of a preseason berth clearly went south. jim harbaugh to oakland?
6:04 pm
are you sure about it, as he talks with mark davis prior to the game, owner of the raiders, of course. niners found themselves down 3- 0. colin kaepernick to bruce miller, tip-towing down the sidelines. 8-yard touchdown, 7-3, 49ers lead. but shortly after, raiders answering back. second quarter, derek carr to offensive tackle-eligible donald penn, 3-yard touchdown. the game 10-10 at half time. third quarter, eight-play, 80- yard drive. marcel reece from carr, who had maybe his best game as a pro. not finished by any means. rivera, who had 109 yards receiving, and that touchdown catch, and feel it. niners down 24-13. kaepernick was sacked five times, is picked off for the second time in the game. charles woodson, the soon-to-be hall of famer, whenever he decides to retire with the pick that put the exclamation point on this 24-13 victory and the
6:05 pm
raiders, just their second win. the only negative for oakland, they are not a shoe-in to have the number one pick in the draft come this spring. but you know what? they don't care. this was their super bowl and even though mathematically the 49ers are alive, they don't really have a realistic chance of going to the post season. >> so both teams now looking forward, there's going to be changes on both sides of the bay, aren't there? >> yeah, i think tony sparano, current head coach of the raiders on an interim level, i don't see him as the permanent guy. and the 49ers have made it pretty clear jim harbaugh, although he does have a year left on his contract, he's not coming back. >> any tweets yet from jedd? >> if he was disappointed with the way they played against seattle, i can only imagine. but i'm sure he curbed his appetite for tweeting following the fallout of his last tweet. but we'll keep you posted. we've still got joe fonzi and scott reiss out at the coliseum with a full report later in the newscast with some of the
6:06 pm
fallout. joe described the 49er locker room as grim, to say the least. >> i can imagine. >> we'll have more a little later. >> thanks, mark. now we want to head to berkeley, where another protest against police brutality is getting under way on the cal campus. this comes just 24 hours after protests turned violent in the streets of berkeley last night. ktvu's cara lui is live at uc berkeley with what's happening there now. >> reporter: well, right now we are seeing at least 150 to 200 people here right now. it's a little difficult to see tethered from our standpoint here with our camera and news trucks, but it looks as if some of this group was making a move to start blocking the intersection. we've seen traffic kind of held up here just in the last few minutes, but again, this is happening at bank roth and telegraph and sprow plaza. some people are holding signs saying "black lives matter," other signs critical of police. one woman told me she came out because she can't sit still any
6:07 pm
longer, wanting to protest the grand jury's decision not to indict white police officers in the deaths of two unarmed black men in new york and ferguson, missouri. now, some of the protesters here today were at protests last night that turned violent. they say they sincerely hope that does not repeat itself here tonight. >> i just want to add my peaceful voice. i think it's really important for white people to show up. this issue is based on people of color and certainly i see it as their fight, but i want to support them in that. i think the white majority, i believe, does not believe in racism, but i also believe they are pretty blind to it. >> reporter: and it's looking like right now here at bank croft and telegraph, some of the group may be starting to move down telegraph. again, we are tethered to this position at the moment, but we will continue monitoring the situation tonight and let you know what happens. again, we did hear from quite a few of these protesters here,
6:08 pm
saying they very much want this to be a peaceful demonstration, but we'll keep you updated. >> no one wants a repeat of last night when the small group became a little aggressive. thank you, cara. berkeley police made at least a half dozen arrests after last night's protest did turn violent. police released a picture of some of the objects they say were thrown at officers during that demonstration against police abuse. berkeley pd says two of its officers were injured. police also released a picture of a police vehicle that was vandalized. here it is here. some of it had to be blocked out because of the language involved. some businesses in berkeley were also damaged. noelle walker was in berkeley today with the aftermath of what started out as a peaceful protest. >> reporter: broken glass and plywood where windows should be, in a season that's meant to share peace on earth. there are signs there was no peace in berkeley last night. >> it was pretty crazy. [ gunfire ] >> reporter: some protesters
6:09 pm
vandalized businesses. >> back, back up! >> back! >> reporter: police used tear gas. there were rocks thrown, rubber bullets fired, while some protesters protected businesses, trying to keep the focus on the message. >> it's just fighting violence with violence that we don't need! >> reporter: that's how protests against police violence ended saturday night. this man was walking home from dinner when the radioshack near his home was vandalized. >> it's always easier to destroy than to create something. where they should be creating a dialogue, you know, it kind of lapses into destruction. >> reporter: today, the sign at radioshack said open, but the metal curtain and boarded-up windows said otherwise. up university avenue in the shadow of martin luther king, jr., trader joe's was open inside, but still showed scars outside. >> i just didn't think something like that could happen in berkeley. >> reporter: if chatter on social media is any indication, it seems there could be protests planned over the next couple of days. it also seems that berkeley
6:10 pm
police have anticipated that, keeping the barricades up around the police department. police amended posted signs around police headquarters. no parking for the next two days. >> it's not good for anyone. this doesn't help anyone.

6:11 pm
north coast, toward humboldt county, mendocino county as well, and some of this energy will be sliding to the south over the next 12 to 18 hours. in fact, here's the forecast model showing you this. overnight, the fog regrouping in the central valley, up to our north and west. a few scattered showers approaching the bay area. nothing too significant, but still a chance, even if you're not covered, the chance of a few pop-up showers for tonight and into monday morning. you can see right around 1:00 monday afternoon, we could have more organized rainfall approaching. the big story is not for tonight, not for tomorrow, but later in the week. as we pointed out, that very active storm track and strong storm developing, set to move into the region on thursday. you definitely want to stick around for the forecast because we'll have a lot to talk about with this system in terms of significant rainfall and very strong winds. more coming up in about 10 minutes. santa rosa police have arrested two teenagers in connection with three drive-by shootings last week. investigators say a routine search of the home of a 15-year- old who was on probation turned
6:12 pm

6:45 pm
2 to 4 inches for the bay area hills. coastal hills, santa cruz mountains, north bay coastal hills, we could have amounts around 5 to 7 inches and a lot of this coming down thursday morning. strong winds as well, gusts to over 60 miles an hour, especially for the higher terrain. this will lead to downed trees and power outages. we have a few days to prepare, but that's what's shaping up right now just a few days away. chance of a spotty shower into your monday. tuesday will be completely dry, but look what happens into wednesday. there's that rain band approaching the region. not here yet, but by wednesday night into thursday, it will be moving in. forecast highs for tomorrow, mainly in the 60s for afternoon highs. no big changes. santa rosa, 65. mountain view, 64. a look ahead at your five-day forecast, chance of a shower for monday, a break day on tuesday. then get ready for significant rainfall thursday. showers continue into friday and we will need a break into the weekend for saturday, scattered clouds out there. we're definitely keeping an eye on the thursday system. still a few days away, but it does bear watching. >> but there's time to get
6:46 pm
ready? >> and get the flashlights ready, because we could have power outages out there. >> okay. thank you, mark. coming up, we are live at the coliseum in oakland, wrapping up today's battle of the bay. >> between the 49ers and the raiders. sports wrap is coming up next.
6:47 pm
6:48 pm
. good evening to you on this special battle of the bay edition of sports wrap. joe fonzi is still out at the coliseum. right before everybody's eyes, the 49ers season completely
6:49 pm
unravels. jim harbaugh goes to the east bay and the 49er playoffs hopes go south. first play of the game from scrimmage, kaepernick, you knew it wasn't going to be his day, he overthrows crabtree and is picked up by ross and it was all pretty much downhill from there. the niners did find themselves down 3-0, but colin kaepernick will get bruce miller down the sideline for the 8-yard touchdown. 7-3 49ers. raiders immediately answer back. derek carr goes to trickery to donald penn, scoring from 3 yards out. tied at half time. third quarter, eight-play, 80- yard, carr to marcel reece in from 9 yards. raiders lead it 17-13. on to the fourth quarter, carr and company, not done yet. that's the tight end mychal rivera, who had over 100 yards receiving and there you go.
6:50 pm
another touchdown, one of three for carr and it's all over when kaepernick is picked off over the middle by the great and soon-to-be hall of famer charles woodson. tony sparano with the gatorade bath, even though it's just the second win of the year for the oakland raiders. jim harbaugh in his certainly final season with the 49ers, goes off a 24-13 loser, just three games left for the 49ers. mathematically alive for a playoff chance, but that is about it. we go back out to the coliseum and to both joe fonzi and scott reiss, double teaming this game, because it is, after all, the bay bridge series. over to you guys. battle of the bay didn't turn out like a lot of people expected. >> no, mark. i've been saying this, and i'll say it again, because it bears repeating. that is, scott, it's very strange that a two-win team feels like it has more momentum with three games to play for the rest of the season and the off season than a team that has
6:51 pm
seven wins and still mathematically alive for the playoffs, but that's how it feels tonight. >> go figure, the raiders, right? they avoid the winless season by beating a good kansas city team, then get white washed 52- 0 by the rams and come back and beat the niners at home. guess it's the quality, not the quantity. this was the super bowl for the raiders fans and everyone from the locker room understand. >> i'm really proud of those guys. it takes a lot of courage of what they did today. lot of courage. love that group. they are resillient. i honestly thought derek played really well tonight. best game. i don't know, i think he threw is really well. they got a the lot of people down there in the box today. they obviously wanted us to see whether or not we can beat them throwing the football and derek was able to do that. >> to say that's the best i've clicked, i've said it before. i don't ever feel like i'm in a zone or this. i think we all executed and did
6:52 pm
our job, to be honest. it was nice to see. i'm really happy for our coaches. i'm happy for our coaches, all of their hard work and extra hours are paying off. >> this is kind of like a college atmosphere, you know, playing your crosstown rival. for me, i compare it to playing michigan state in college. it's huge. these fans, they live close to one another, every day they go to work together. it's bragging rights for them. it was big for not only us as a team, but for the whole raider nation. >> this really wasn't a nail biter for the raiders. it was a convincing statement. the defense got after kaepernick, sacked him four times. the offense was crisp. derek carr was fantastic, pulled out the tackle eligible for a touchdown. other side, 49ers left with a lot of questions. >> for the 49ers, it's a repeat story. they have had trouble scoring in the second half all season. that was the case again today. really grim is the only way you can describe their locker room, as the players tried to explain how such a promising season at one point has turned into what
6:53 pm
it has become. >> you've had some tough losses this year. is this a low point of the season? >> i wouldn't directly call it a low point. what can we say? got to move on and get ready for seattle. >> i'm in my stance on the field looking at the formation and looking at receivers, not worried about what people are saying about us on the outside. i'm worried about the down and we didn't do that today. >> all we can do is win. if we win out, maybe there's a chance. we'll see. >> jim, do you think -- [ inaudible question ] >> am i -- my priorities are number one, winning football games. number two, the welfare of our players, coaches, our staff, and lastly is what my personal
6:54 pm
professional future is. >> you in particular don't seem to be playing at your usual level the last several games. do you understand why-- [ indiscernible ] >> i have to play better. >> i'm sorry? >> i have to play better. >> i understand that. do you understand why you're not playing better? >> i haven't been playing well. >> well, another bit of dysfunction for a team that seems to have the hits coming, one after another, ahmad brooks apparently missed a team meeting this past week. he didn't play, breaking a consecutive game streak for him at 60. so you just can't say the events are happening one after another for the 49ers. it's going to be a very strange off season and final three weeks. >> it's not unfolding well. you heard mark mark say it. they would basically have to win out at this point. they still have games coming against arizona and next week against seattle. that will wrap it up from the coliseum. mark, back to you. >> okay. classic post game comments
6:55 pm
from our man colin kaepernick. in the meantime, we've got more football to talk about and that would include college ball as well, when we come back. sports wrap part 2, next. veteran: i live independently because of what all it provides for me. and it's huge! there's a lot of wounded, ill, and injured out there just like myself, who just maybe need a little bit of help. tag: you can lend a helping paw too. give at mattressdiscountersdogs.com or any mattress discounters. mattress discounters good deed dogs-- helping dogs help people.
6:56 pm
6:57 pm
. they still have to go up to the great northwest and take on the seattle seahawks, a team that smothered them badly at levi a couple weeks ago. not even two weeks ago. seattle in philly, 17-14 trailing russell wilson to baldwin, over the top 23-yards touchdown. seattle wins on the road, 24- 14. and the cardinals, still first in the nfc west, trailing 14-9. drew stanton will hit brown 26 yards. cardinals come back to beat the chiefs, 17-14, remaining one game up on the seahawks for first place in the nfc west. meantime, if you have not heard yet, stanford's going to a bowl game.
6:58 pm
it will be the foster farms bowl in their own backyard. they will be taking on maryland. that game will be held on december 30th. that, right now, is the sporting life. man, it's going to be an interesting off season, but a very interesting week even to come for the 49ers. wow, some people are even predicting harbaugh may bow out even sooner than the end of the season. >> wow. >> tumultuous stuff going on. >> to be continued. >> hearing the word "imploded" being thrown around. >> unraveled, you name it. pick your word. thanks for watching. see you tonight at 10:00. >> good night, everybody.
6:59 pm
7:00 pm
t you're eating is not technically yogurt, because it doesn't have enough live acidophilus cultures. it's really just ice milk with carrageenan added for thickness. oh, that's very interesting. it's also not pink and has no berries. yeah, but it doesn't really answer my question. what was your question again? do you want some? oh... right. no. i'm lactose intolerant. right. so, gas. yeah, got it. well... good night. what are you doing?
