San Francisco 49ers Stuns Oakland Raiders
It’s week 9 in the NFL and the Oakland Raiders and San Francisco 49ers kick things off on Thursday Night Football.

When the game started, the Oakland Raiders started the game with a 3-0 lead. Then Nick Mullens and the 49ers started their first drive and never looked back. The San Francisco 49ers defeated the Oakland Raiders 31-3.
In his first game in the National Football League, Mullens completed 16 of his 22 passes, 262 yards, and 3 touchdowns. He did not throw a single interception.
On the other side of the field, Derek Carr didn’t have a great night. He was 16/21, 171 yards, and he was sacked 7 times. In the second half, backup quarterback AJ McCarron came in and went 1-8 for 8 yards. He too was sacked by the 49ers defense.
The San Francisco 49ers next game is at home against the New York Giants. You can see that game on Monday, November 12 at 8:15 Eastern, 7:15 Central on ESPN.
For the Oakland Raiders, they will host the Los Angeles Chargers on November 11 at 3:00 PM Eastern on CBS.
Raiders’ Antonio Brown Settles Lawsuit
New Oakland Raiders wide receiver Antonio Brown, who was acquired via trade from the Pittsburgh Steelers earlier this offseason, has struck a settlement with a man, Ophir Sternberg, that claimed that he nearly killed a toddle by throwing furniture off of a Miami apartment building balcony, according to TMZ.
In the lawsuit, Sternberg claims his 22-month-old son was walking around the pool at the high-end apartment complex back in April 2018 when suddenly “large objects started to fall from the building many floors above them.”
Sternberg claimed that Brown tossed everything from vases, an ottoman, and other pieces of furniture from the balcony and they landed within feet of the toddler.
Brown had denied throwing the items, claiming that it was another person who had access to his apartment on that day.
Police responded to the scene and reported that Brown was “very agitated” and yelling when they arrived, noting that people have been trying to calm Brown down.
The terms of the settlement were not disclosed.
