City Youth Brock Coyle Jersey , the fans had better not blink when he has the ball in his hands. Mahomes has one of the strongest arms the NFL ever has seen, and he has displayed it throughout the first two weeks of the regular season.“I know when I am amped up, I throw it pretty hard sometimes, but luckily I have guys that can catch it,” Mahomes told reporters this week. “There is so much difference of having arm ability. You have to be able to throw it hard, you have to be able to throw it with touch. You have to be able to do everything in this league and I try to get better at every single one of those throws every single day.鈥滺e said his hardest throw ever came two weeks ago, against the Chargers.“I have probably thrown it as hard as I can a couple times,” Mahomes said. “Whenever there are those tight windows Womens Ahkello Witherspoon Jersey , I let it go. I think the ball to Sammy [Watkins] the first week against the Chargers was probably the hardest I have ever thrown it. It was rifled in there.鈥滺e’s been rifling it all his life. As he explained last month during a visit with PFT Live, Mahomes forced a very specific change in the rules of T-ball when he a six-year-old shortstop. After breaking the glasses of a teammate with a rocket to first base, Mahomes moving forward was instructed to roll the ball instead. The San Francisco 49ers met the Oakland Raiders under the lights of Levi’s Stadium for what’s likely to be the teams’ final Battle of the Bay before the silver and black’s 2020 move to Las Vegas. The results were surprising, with the 49ers dominating the Raiders on both sides of the ball seemingly with ease. Here’s five takeaways from the 49ers’ 34-3 win over the Raiders:We believe in Mullens MagicThe underdogs most of the week, the Raiders became the odds-on favorite the moment news broke pre-game that third-string-turned-backup Nick Mullens was starting for the 49ers on Thursday night. Unfortunately for anyone that took that bet, Mullens obliterated the Raiders in his first professional start. The second-year quarterback completed 16 of 22 (72.7%) passes for 262 yards, three touchdowns, no turnovers and a rating of 151.9. It is on the short list for greatest debut performances ever by an NFL quarterback.George Kittle continues to dominateKittle continues to give us a reason to feature him in our post-game takeaways. The 49ers’ second-year tight end was dominant once again Thursday against the Raiders. He reeled in four receptions on four targets for 108 yards and touchdown. Thursday was Kittle’s second 100-yard performance of 2018 Womens Solomon Thomas Jersey , with 71 of those coming on an incredible one-handed catch-and-run on a Mullens pass squeezed in perfectly between three defenders.Dekoda Watson big on returnWatson was placed on injured reserve in September after suffering a hamstring injury during practice prior to the regular season. The veteran linebacker made his return Sunday and was effective off the edge for the 49ers. Watson totaled three tackles, 1.5 sacks, three quarterback hits and one tackle for loss against the Raiders. The 49ers’ defense has lacked a consistent pass rush so far this season and while Watson may not be a long-term solution, his production Thursday will be encouraging for the 49ers moving forward.Mike McGlinchey is a home runOffensive lineman don’t make the highlight reel often but 49ers rookie Mike McGlinchey has made a habit of it. He drove a man off the field and into the Cardinals’ sideline in Arizona and again found a way to stand out Thursday against the Raiders. The 6-foot-8, 315-pound first-rounder ran 51 yards downfield to pave the way for running back Raheem Mostert’s touchdown. McGlinchey, Pro Football Focus’ top-graded rookie offensive lineman, has been a home-run pick so far for the 49ers and general manager John Lynch.Robert Saleh’s defense stiflesThe 49ers’ defense completely shut down the Raiders. In addition to Watson’s stellar return, the pass rush as a whole was the most notable improvement with Cassius Marsh (2.5) Womens Dante Pettis Jersey , DeForest Buckner, and Solomon Thomas all sacking Raiders quarterback Derek Carr. The defense also racked up ten quarterback hits, and eight tackles for a loss. They failed to secure a takeaway, which has been an issue all year, but they thoroughly dominated a shaky Raiders offense. The cornerbacks were barely tested after the opening drive, while linebacker Fred Warner showed up big in his coverage work. After some hiccups on the opening drive, this was a much-needed near perfect performance by the 49ers defense.
