5:22 The 49ers win the toss and defer.
5:33 The Raiders drive to the 49ers’ 13-yard line with ease. But, Raiders left tackle Kolton Miller injures his right knee, and the Raiders go backward after a holding penalty. They kick a 37-yard field goal and lead 3-0.
5:34 The 49ers gave up a 20-yard gain on a two-yard check down during the drive. The 49ers blitzed multiple linebackers from Carr’s left side. The defensive end on Carr’s right side should have covered the running back out of the backfield, but didn’t.
5:40 On third-and-2 from the Raiders 24, Mullens fakes a handoff, rolls out of the pocket to his right and throws a 24-yard touchdown pass to a wide open Pierre Garcon. The 49ers lead 7-3. Mullens completed all three of his pass attempts and threw for 41 yards.
5:46 Kolton Miller is back at left tackle for the Raiders.
5:48 On second-and-1, DeForest Buckner sacks Derek Carr for a five-yard loss. Next play, Carr scrambles to his left and overthrows Jordy Nelson. The Raiders punt.
6:05 On third-and-goal from the 4, Mullens throws a touchdown pass to Kendrick Bourne. The 49ers lead 14-3. Mullens has thrown touchdown passes on the first two drives of his NFL career. Impressive.
6:18 The Raiders drive to the 49ers 38, but Seth Roberts commits a holding penalty and moves the Raiders backward. They punt a few plays later.
6:23 On third and 15, Mullens completes a four-yard pass to Kyle Juszczyk, and the 49ers go three and out. Bradley Pinion’s punt rolls to the Raideers 6-yard line.
6:30 On third and 6 from the Raiders 48, Cassius Marsh and Ronald Blair sack Carr for a four-yard loss. The Raiders offensive linemen are making the 49ers pass rushers look like Pro Bowlers. And the Raiders “vaunted” vertical passing game is making the 49ers makeshift secondary look like world beaters.
6:39 On third and 6 from the 49ers 24, Mullens completes a 53-yard pass to rookie wide receiver Richie James.
6:40 On third and 8 from the Raiders 21, Mullens throws an incomplete back-shoulder fade to Pierre Garcon.
6:41 Robbie Gould makes a 39-yard field goal, and the 49ers lead 17-3 at halftime. They will get the ball to start the second half.
6:59 On second and 12 from the 49ers 27, Mullens throws a dangerous pass over the middle, but George Kittle reaches out with his left arm, makes a one-handed catch and runs 71 yards. Two plays later, Mullens rolls to his left and throws a touchdown pass to Kittle. The 49ers lead 24-3.
7:05 Dekoda Watson sacks Carr on second and 8, and the Raiders go three and out.
7:12 On first and 10 from the 49ers 48, Mullens tosses to Raheem Mostert, and none of the Raiders particularly feel like tackling him, so he runs 52 yards for the touchdown. And the 49ers lead 31-3.
7:18 On third and five from the Raiders 42, Fred Warner knocks down Carr’s pass, and the Raiders punt one play later.
7:31 On third and 1, Mostert runs for no yards and the 49ers punt.
7:47 Mostert is out with a forearm injury.
8:03 Robbie Gould makes a 25-yard field goal, and the 49ers lead 34-3.
