two stories came out of one game last night at levi's stadium. nick mullens had the highest pass rating by a quarterback in his first start since the nfl, afl merger in 1970. the second story? raiders might be the worst team in the nfl. before the game, mullens wasn't even verified on twitter. right now he has about 23,000 followers. why? because he did stuff like this. opening drive to a wide-open garcon, 7-3, 49ers and, of course, he kept the ball. second drive he threaded the needle to bourn a 13-yard drive. the raiders were awful! derek carr had no time to throw the football. the offensive line allowed 7 sacks.
6:24 am
if oakland wanted to win, it didn't show. mullens with the third touchdown pass of the game. 24-3. mullens 16 of 22, a rating of 151.9. next possession, moser, you know, he doesn't even have to wash his uniform for next week's game. this was an embarrassing blowout, 34-3. oakland drops to 1-7. 49ers get their second win of the year. >> we're just keeping our secret weapons, you know, ready to go. nick has prepared for a long time and deserves this and i was happy he got the result. >> how did you sleep? >> i slept good except i woke up about every hour. but those hour periods are great. >> we have to find a way to start games better. we have to eliminate the big plays, stop the runs somehow. we have to stop the bleeding. >> just didn't get no breaks. didn't really have no big plays. didn't get no turnovers. um, and they literally just came on and just beat us to a

6:26 am
larry nance finishing strong with the jam but in the end they lost to the nuggets 110- 91. 6:26. the 49ers put on a show at levi's stadium last night. but it was a cheerleader who stole the spotlight. and just four days before the election, governor jerry brown is trying to persuade voters to vote against proposition 6. that's the measure that would get rid of the gas tax. t, it continues toy paramedics while we're on break. second, it ensures the closest ambulance can respond if you call 9-1-1. vote yes on 11.
6:27 am
big corporations are making and just got a huge tax break. but the middle class is struggling. prop c is a common-sense plan. the top 1% of businesses pay their fair share to tackle homelessness for all of us. companies with revenue greater than $50 million pay, not small businesses or homeowners. the prop c plan is supported by the democratic party, nancy pelosi & dianne feinstein vote "yes" on c. big corporations pay for it, not you. "look what she's accomplished... she authored the ban on assault weapons... pushed the desert protection act through congress, and steered billions of federal dollars to california projects such as subway construction and wildfire restoration." "she... played an important role in fighting off

...trump's efforts to kill the affordable care act." california news papers endorse dianne feinstein for us senate. california values senator dianne feinstein recently, more than $20 million has been spent in the race for superintendent of public instruction to attack my friend tony thurmond's record. well, i've worked with tony, and no one is more qualified to lead our state's schools. that's why tony thurmond is the only candidate endorsed by classroom teachers and the california democratic party. because tony will stand up to the donald trump-betsy devos agenda and has always protected our local public schools. join me in voting for tony thurmond. let's put our kids first.
6:29 am

6:32 am
that is in control for us but looking well ahead, we are talking 7 to 10 days out on futurecast. i'm going to show you this because we're tracking our next weather system. that could possibly bring some rain. i'll show you this on futurecast coming up in just a few minutes. let's head to the south bay right now as expected we are starting to see some delays along 87. guadalupe parkway, an accident involving a big rig and several other vehicles. it's in the center divide. but we are seeing some slow and go conditions as we approach the scene. lots of activity there also on scene so we are seeing some slight spectator slowing on the southbound side, as well. northbound 87 from 85 to 101, 10 minutes past the crash you're clear all the way if you are connecting on to 101. 101 itself northbound out of the south bay, you have slow and go conditions from yerba buena, stays sluggish all the way to at least 880. that's typical for this time of the morning. also, your usual slow and go conditions northbound 101 out of morgan hill.

6:34 am
aaa says that the national gas average is $2.90. in california, it's closer to $3.80. so there's been a little bit of controversy surrounding how the measure is worded on the ballot. those for prop 6 say the language is misleading while those against prop 6 say it's just fine. >> if the original ballot title said gas tax repeal, voters are confused. >> sometimes the truth hurts. >> reporter: this ballot measure may play a role in the gubernatorial race, as well. republican john cox has been helping lead the charge in support of prop 6 to repeal the gas tax saying the roads need to be fixed but the state has enough money already to do it. gavin newsom points to the fact that 27 other states have followed california's lead and raised their gas tax to fix roads. he is in against repealing the gas tax. governor brown will talk about it this morning. he opposes prop 6. jackie

ward, kpix 5. a 49ers cheerleader is creating national controversy for kneeling during the national anthem before last night's game against the raiders in santa clara. it was not seen on the live national broadcast. but lenny harrold who attended the game took this photo and posted it online. >> i can't even use my phone at this point, like, getting so many retweets and replies. some people think she is awesome and other people think she should be fired. >> the cheerleaders' action came more than two years after then 49ers quarterback colin kaepernick started similar protests. the 49ers won the game which is likely the last meeting between the two teams before the raiders go to las vegas. sadly, it wouldn't be the last battle of the bay without raiders fans and 9ers fans brawling in the stands. this twitter video you can see several rival fans getting into fights. [ screaming ]
6:36 am
