One of the greatest NFL rivalries the the Battle of the Bay Area between the Oakland Raiders and the San Francisco 49ers. Tonight was the match-up at Levi’s Stadium.
With both teams having poor records and only one win apiece, only one could take home their second win of the season. A lot of people were betting that the Raiders were favored to win because of 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo’s season ending injury and the fact that their backup CJ Bethard wasn’t playing well since losing six straight games.
However, it was the 49ers that pulled off a huge victory by a final score of 34-3 over the Raiders, thanks to their third string backup quarterback Nick Mullens. With that being said, the 49ers are now 2-7, while the Raiders fall to 1-7.
Along those lines of this rivalry, I’ve created A House Divided poster with those two teams since I new these two teams would face off against each other this year.
With half of the NFL season gone, the second half of the journey to Super Bowl LIII continues to see who will make it and who will take home the Vince Lombardi Trophy.
