Aqib Talib, Michael Crabtree Fight Causes Three Raiders, Broncos Ejections

Speaking of Lynch, the popular running back amusingly ensured Talib's safe passage to the locker room by escorting the rival cornerback through the Raiders sideline into the tunnel.

Oakland Raiders wide receiver Michael Crabtree was thrown out of Sunday's game versus the Denver Broncos earlier in the first quarter. A host of Broncos came to Talib's defense, despite the fact that Talib had managed to work his way on top of Crabtree. Talib famously yanked the chain off Crabtree's neck in a game previous year. Today, just four minutes into the Broncos-Raiders rematch, Crabtree went for payback, blocking Talib so roughly that he forced Talib off the field and onto the ground.

Raiders guard Gabe Jackson also was ejected for pushing an official during the skirmish.




Talib, the former Kansas star who is now a cornerback with the Broncos, exchanged blows with Crabtree, the Raiders star receiver. That led to players from both sides joining the scrum.

The scuffle continued into the end zone, where Crabtree took an errant swing at Talib before order was ultimately restored and both players left the field. That got them both kicked out. You won't see football fights that insane very often.
