Even after the Raiders suffered their seventh loss of the season at the hands of the 49ers Thursday night, the coach doubled down on his claims that people are "dying" to come play for Oakland.

The former undrafted free agent out of Favre's alma mater Southern Mississippi finished 16 for 22 in place of the injured C.J. Beathard and had a 151.9 passer rating, the highest for a quarterback with at least 15 attempts in an National Football League debut since the 1970 merger. "The brand of the Raiders is an exciting one and I think a lot of players, no doubt, do want to play for us in the future".

The NFL protest movement has divided opinion for years, with some supporting players' cause and methods and others, like president Donald Trump, reacting with scorn. The 49ers officially have a quarterback controversy.

Mullens got the start after C.J. Beathard was declared unable to go due to thumb and wrist injuries after Thursday's pregame warmup. He had 7 rushes for 86 yards and a touchdown.

The Raiders (1-7) clearly didn't, losing for the fourth straight time, getting outscored by 85 points during the skid.

Jon Gruden still has faith in his Raiders.

The San Francisco defense, meanwhile, harassed Oakland's Derek Carr into seven sacks on a 16-for-21 night.
