49ers cheerleader takes a knee during national anthem

CJ-Beathard-101517-GETTY-FTR

While she hasn't publicly addressed her gesture, she is believed to be the first cheerleader to participate in protests former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick started in 2016 against police violence in minority communities and racial inequality in the United States. 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.

However, Mullens proved to be the antidote for what has ailed the 49ers for much of the 2018 season, as the rookie quarterback oozed confidence throughout the contest. San Francisco started its third-string quarterback, yet rolled to a 34-3 win. He had 7 rushes for 86 yards and a touchdown.

Mullens got the nod after C.J. Beathard injured his right wrist last week and made the most of his opportunity against a defence for the Raiders (1-7) that is one of the worst in the league.
