Michael Crabtree And Aqib Talib Sparked A Raiders-Broncos Fight

Losing Cooper hits hard considering Oakland already lost their best receiver in Michael Crabtree for his involvement in a fight with Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib in the first half.

Photos and videos indicated Talib may have again pulled a chain from Crabtree's neck during the scuffle. "Gabe Jackson, a Pro Bowl offensive lineman for the Raiders, was also ejected for contact with an official".

Aqib Talib and Michael Crabtree couldn't contain themselves. A host of Broncos came to Talib's defense, despite the fact that Talib had managed to work his way on top of Crabtree.


On the previous play, Crabtree injured Talib's teammate Chris Harris Jr. on a downfield block. After Talib yanked Crabtree's chain off of his neck, Crabtree took Talib to the ground on the sideline before their brawl spilled over onto the field. 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. Raiders players began pushing the Denver players circled around Crabtree, leading to a brawl between the teams.

When the altercation did finally subside, both the receiver and cornerback were ejected from the contest.
