Players Brawl During Broncos-Raiders Game

The Oakland Raiders and the Denver Broncos don't like each other, specifically Michael Crabtree and Aqib Talib!

Emotions boiled over as Talib started blocking Crabtree.

Talib and Crabtree then exchanged shoves before swinging punches at each other.

The two squared up in Week 17 of last season, with Talib snapping off Crabtree's gold chain from around his neck.

Both players were ejected. Crabtree threw a punch. The same fate could await Jackson, who was replaced by Jon Feliciano, and Crabtree and Talib are subject to fines. Now both teams will have to finish it out without one of their best players.


Crabtree blocked Talib during a 5-yard run by running back Marshawn Lynch. That got them both kicked out.

On the third possession of the game, Crabtree and Talib got into more than a scuffle near the Broncos sideline at the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum.

The game was scoreless when the players were ejected.

According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal's Michael Gehlken, Raiders offensive guard Gabe Jackson was tossed after making contact with a referee. You won't see football fights that insane very often.
