The lowly San Francisco 49ers are taking it to the cross-bay rival Oakland Raiders on Thursday Night Football.
Already up 17-3 early in the third quarter, tight end George Kittle had one heck of a highlight-reel catch to help San Francisco score their third touchdown of the game. It was of the one-handed variety and went for a crazy 71 yards.

He might be playing for one of the worst teams in the NFL, but the second-year tight end has proven himself to be among the best players at his position in the league. How he was able to haul this one is no one really knows.
As you can see, Kittle also displayed the afterburners that’s made him an elite target through the first nine games of the season.
San Francisco scored a couple plays later after Mullens hit Kittle on a five-yard touchdown to give the one-win team a 24-3 early third quarter lead.
