Colin Kaepernick

By the numbers: Raiders 24, 49ers 13

The numbers tell the story of an ugly game for the 49ers.

54.4 – Colin Kaepernick’s passer rating. Ranked 32nd of his 36 regular season starts.

140.2 – Derek Carr’s passer rating. By far his best of the season, and he also set a career high in completion percentage. His 140.2 mark is 21st best so far this season. He really looked impressive carving up the 49ers.

3.97 – 49ers’ net yards per passing attempt (passing yards – sack yards) / (passing attempts + times sacked)

5.39 – 49ers’ yards per rushing attempt vs the Raiders, the 13th best average of the Harbuagh era.

18 – Number of rushing attempts by the 49ers, tied for the second fewest during the Harbaugh era. This is the third time this season the 49ers have rushed 19 or fewer times this season.

7 – Second half rushing attempts, including just two in the fourth quarter

3 – Delay of game penalties. This has to be one of the most frustrating things to see week after week.

0 – Number of third downs converted in the second half by the 49ers. Overall the 49ers converted 3-of-11.

10.25 – Average third down distance for a first down. The 49ers had just one third down all game that was less than five yards and nine of ten or more yards.

30% – Number of drop backs where Derek Carr was under pressure. The 49ers produced just one sack.

3 – The number of two-game losing streaks the 49ers have had this season. In the first three years under Harbaugh that happened just twice (both streaks occurred last season).

8 – The number of times the 49ers have failed to score more than 20 points this season.

26 – The 49ers’ rank in points scored this season, the worst since the Mike Nolan-led 2007 team.

130 – The number of words Colin Kaepernick used to answer 19 questions in his post game press conference. A nice bump from the 83 words he used to answer 29 questions last week.

Lastly a picture to illustrate a grouping of numbers. Colin Kaerpnick’s passer rating by game since becoming the starting quarterback with the trend line in gold:
