vote yes on prop 25 >>the niners road, the best defense in the nfl all the way to the super bowl last season yesterday that unit dominated the same way they did all of last year. they held the patriots to just 3 points, they pick them off 4 times 3 of them off former mvp cam knew it would probably be unfair to hold them to yesterday standard for the rest of the season. but if they can play like that moving forward the niners will not lose all that often and now they are right back in the thick of things in the super competitive nfc west. another bright spot from yesterday's win was the one game. the
niners ran for a 100 in 97 yards and 4 touchdowns jeff wilson junior led the way he had 17 carries for a 112 yards and 3 touchdowns it was definitely the best performance of his young career unfortunately wilson suffered a high ankle sprain and will likely go on the injured reserve later this week that's the at watch every single play on the whole game. i mean every time he gets hit there as it looks like the goal line is right in front of them and he's doing everything he can to cross that you can see it on the field. >>i want to try to talk to him during the 2nd quarter barely could communicate with me because he was in that spot side and try to mess a mess it up. but i was very happy for him and how hard he played it was extremely unfortunate got hurt. >>yesterday i spoke about tom brady tormenting the raiders throughout his patriots career starting with infamous to fool but maybe raiders would have better luck against tampa time. i that was wishful thinking as you can see tom brady had his best game as the
buck against of course the raiders in that porous defense 4 touchdown passes and a touchdown run and you can see brady chirping all game long. he wasn't shy. it was very humbling afternoon for the raiders who now find themselves at 3 in 3, 2 and a half games behind the chief, the biggest issue may be that defense only one team in the nfl is giving up more points per game than the raiders s the dallas cowboys on defense offense. i'm sorry the raiders had a marine of issues yesterday, the offensive line had practice all week and guess what it showed. they gave up 3 sacks and their car was under constant pressure he also threw 4 interceptions all in all this is a team the whole lot of hold with the most glaring ones coming on defense watch we play some really good offense just so you know. >>tom brady's a problem for a lot of people >>so is drew brees and certainly a lot of the guys that we've seen are very good players. we're going to stick
scene this was an can kuhn people there bracing for possible landfall. forecasters are predicting that say to will be a low and hurricane they don't think it will be nearly as strong as hurricane delta just weeks ago for details on where this storm is headed tonight, let's check in with our chief meteorologist lawrence karnow lawrence how close is a to getting to land right now you would think it's far away just making its way across the yucatan peninsula. but it is going to pick up speed and raced toward the mainland united states i think making landfall by wednesday evening here it is this 27th named storm of the season making its way in the yucatan you can see is just beginning to push across there and as it does it will start to weaken somewhat as a runs in the landfall of love to stay out over the open waters that's way. >>it can renew its fuel source but it will move over land maybe slightly weekend right now this is not a real strong system just yet sustained winds of 80 miles per hour. it
is going to be a major rainmaker or some flash flooding across the yucatan peninsula expected to move back out into open waters as we head in toward tomorrow. and there you go by tuesday 5 o'clock in the afternoon still a category one hurricane as it makes its way across the waters, the good news is the latest forecast does not have it strengthening looks like it maintain strength as it begins to approach may be strengthening just a little bit as we head into our wednesday morning but look at the track to wouldn't you know it. we could be seeing another landfall of a hurricane possibly in louisiana that would be the 4th 5th storm that has landed in that area this year right now it is getting closer to new orleans you have to keep a very close eye on that possibly making landfall as we head in toward wednesday about 5 o'clock in the evening as a category one hurricane that's really from the weather desk back to you all right lawrence, thank you now to another big story we're following of course is a lot of concern about fires here in northern california but more
