The former undrafted free agent out of Favre's alma mater Southern Mississippi finished 16 for 22 in place of the injured C.J. Beathard and had a 151.9 passer rating, the highest for a quarterback with at least 15 attempts in an National Football League debut since the 1970 merger.

Mullens completed his first three passes, including a 24-yard touchdown toss to Pierre Garcon, to lead the 49ers on a 75-yard drive to begin the game.
