Nick Mullens becomes first 49ers quarterback to do this since Joe Montana

Sep 27, 2020 at 12:09 PM--


Quarterback Nick Mullens started against the New York Giants in place of an injured Jimmy Garoppolo. It is Mullens' ninth career start, with his first eight coming in 2018 after Garoppolo suffered a torn ACL.

Mullens currently has 231 passing yards against the Giants with San Francisco leading 23-9 in the third quarter. That total puts the fourth-year quarterback in some legendary company.

Mullens has become the first 49ers quarterback to throw for 220-plus yards in nine straight starts since Joe Montana did so over the 1985 and 1986 seasons.

San Francisco signed Mullens as an undrafted free agent out of Southern Miss in 2017, and the quarterback spent his rookie season on the practice squad.

Mullens' 2,277 passing yards in 2018 were the fourth-most in a player's first eight career games in NFL history. Only Patrick Mahomes, Andrew Luck, and Cam Newton racked up more.

Mullens has completed 64.3 percent of his passes so far against the Giants.

Fans won't see Ian Rapoport on NFL Network over the next 10 days, but the NFL insider was on KNBR Monday morning to discuss the San Francisco 49ers' stunning loss to the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. Part of the discussion surrounded the poor play of quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, who is recovering from the high-ankle sprain that forced him to miss two games. Garoppolo's performance was enough to bench the starter at halftime in favor of C.J. Beathard. Although, head coach Kyle Shanahan said that was more to protect Garoppolo, who was sacked three times during the first half. "You could tell he was affected by his ankle,"
