    SANTA CLARA Fred Warner Jersey , Calif. (AP) — Nick Mullens is getting an extended look as the San Francisco 49ers‘ starting quarterback, and an important test awaits Sunday.Mullens will make the first road start of his NFL career against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, his first chance to show how he handles a hostile environment after making his first two starts at home.After the 49ers lost No. 1 quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to a season-ending knee injury in Week 3, C.J. Beathard got the first crack at replacing him.Beathard failed to impress over five starts, and the 49ers (2-8) turned to Mullens, who hadn’t played a snap in the NFL before his Nov. 1 start against Oakland.He threw for 262 yards and three touchdowns in that victory and played solid again in a Nov. 12 loss to the New York Giants. Now Mullens, an undrafted free agent who spent all of last season on San Francisco’s practice squad, will have his poise tested on the road.“That definitely is a big challenge,” Mullens said Wednesday. “I haven’t played on the road yet. But I think this team is excited. It’s important we start fast. It’s important for me to keep my same mindset. Don’t let the environment impact the way you play.”Mullens has completed 71 percent of his passes for 512 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions in two games. Those numbers, along with the leadership he has shown, have placed him squarely in the 49ers’ thoughts regarding next season. Assuming Garoppolo makes a healthy return by training camp, which is expected, Mullens will be a legitimate contender for the backup role.But coming off a bye week, he’s trying to help the 49ers finish this season strong after a disappointing first 10 games. Tampa Bay’s defense, on paper, would suggest Mullens can find his comfort zone Sunday.The Buccaneers have allowed the fifth-most yards per game in the NFL (395.9), and they sport the league’s worst turnover ratio at minus-23.Tampa Bay (3-7) has not generated a single defensive takeaway since Justin Evans made a first-quarter interception in the third week against Pittsburgh. Entering Sunday, the Buccaneers have played 32 consecutive quarters without a takeaway.The 49ers haven’t been much better with a minus-15 turnover ratio, second-worst in the NFL.“I think that’s one of the reasons for both teams not having much success,” 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said.Mullens has a unique method for trying to prepare for a road game, one that he used even before becoming the 49ers starter.He found audio files of artificial crowd noise Solomon Thomas Jersey , via Apple Music, slips on his headphones and listens to it at home, calling out signals over the noise as if he was at the line of scrimmage.“I have a very strict routine that I try to stick to, and it helps me prepare,” Mullens said. “And that does involve calling out the plays and envisioning the plays and seeing them in your head.”Given that preparation, it was somewhat surprising to hear Mullens say that he actually did take a couple days off during his bye week and spent it with his wife.Shanahan said he didn’t talk much to Mullens during the break.“You let him get away,” the coach said. “He’s heard enough of me for the time being.”NOTES: Garoppolo, who until recently was using crutches in his recovery from surgery for a torn ACL, has been cleared to at least watch practice from the sidelines, which he did Wednesday as a light drizzle fell. . Receiver Pierre Garcon (knee) did not practice but did agility work on the side. Guard Joshua Garnett (thumb) was held out. Linebacker Reuben Foster (hamstring) and center Weston Richburg (knee) both were limited.Jets defenders credit knowledge of Matthew Stafford hand signals in four- interception performance Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford had a miserable Week 1 performance, throwing four interceptions on Monday Night Football in a 48-17 loss to the New York Jets. The Lions looked like they were going to thump New York early running back a pick six on Sam Darnold’s first pass attempt of the game, but things changed in a hurry.After the game, Jets defensive players had a rather shocking revelation. They knew what was coming based on Stafford’s hand signals.The Lions hired a new head coach this offseason in Matt Patricia, but he chose to retain offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter. That would explain similar hand signals, but it does not explain why the Lions offense looked out of rhythm as they did.It was a rough night for Detroit, with a poor performance coupled with numerous injuries. Matthew Stafford appeared to injure his knee early, but finished out a drive. He later left with a rib injury and was replaced by Matt Cassel. Stafford returned later before being benched in the fourth quarter. Just as important, Darius Slay (head) and edge rusher Ezekiel Ansah (shoulder) both left with injuries, and their statuses for Week 2 is unknown.The San Francisco 49ers host the Lions next Sunday, and Detroit is in a tough spot. They are going on the road after a short week dealing with a host of injuries after an embarrassing season opener. The 49ers are a field goal favorite, coming off their own eight point loss to the Vikings. I don’t think recency bias will have a big impact on the betting numbers, but it will be interesting to see if and how the line moves the next few days.Head coach Kyle Shanahan met with the media right around kickoff of the Lions game Ahkello Witherspoon Jersey , and was asked if he would watch the broadcast. He said he prefers to wait until he has full tape so he can watch coverages and other things, while also being able to fast forward and rewind the tape. Here’s what he had to say as the 49ers begin preparations for the Lions.Will you watch the game tonight for the audio of calls or how do you approach it when the team you’re playing is on Monday Night Football?“I wait until it’s on tape that I can see everything. I don’t know how people get opinions off of watching it on TV because you see the quarterback, you see where the ball goes, you have no idea what the front’s coverages are. It’s just, I think it’s very hard to see unless you can have a fast forward and rewind remote, you can see the sideline copy, the end zone copy. So, I’m not going to waste too much time watching it until we get it into our computers.”Is there anything you can pick up from the audio?“Yeah, you can. We have other guys who do that type of stuff. I know a lot of coaches and organizations, they have someone sitting there listening to every call the center makes, all that stuff, stuff you can give D-Linemen, snap counts, things like that. It gets harder the more people are mic’d up, but also it’s fun for people to think the words you’re going to use and then change them the next week also and get people to jump offsides. So, there’s always that cat and mouse game, how much you want to commit to that stuff. You commit a lot to that stuff and it doesn’t work out the way you planned then you’re going to be in trouble. So, you take a little and then you ignore it sometimes, too.”
