Crabtree, Talib Ejected for Fighting During Raiders-Broncos Game

Adjust Comment Print

Crabtree had played five games against Talib's Broncos. Talib famously yanked the chain off Crabtree's neck in a game past year.

Crabtree followed followed through on a block all the way into the sideline before tackling Talib to the ground. From there, Talib pulled off Crabtree's helmet as he was surrounded by a group of Broncos.

The fight broke into an all-out brawl after players from both teams rushed in to defend their teammates. Talib appeared to again rip off a necklace Crabtree had been wearing Sunday afternoon. That got them both kicked out. Marshawn Lynch was tossed from an October 19 win over Kansas City after leaving the sideline to intercede in an altercation between teammates and the Chiefs Marcus Peters.

The game was scoreless when the players were ejected. Both players were ejected along with Raiders guard Gabe Jackson, who will nearly certainly face a suspension after shoving a ref to the ground in the melee. Harris was injured on the play and as he walked off the field with trainers he turned back to complain to the ref, swinging his arm up in an uppercut-like motion. The tunnel for both locker rooms at the Raiders' stadium is located behind the Raiders bench.

There will be fines, maybe suspensions and a lost game for three key players.
