Denver Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib and Oakland wide receiver Michael Crabtree were ejected early in the first quarter of Sunday’s 21-14 Raiders win after getting into a scuffle that ended up involving several players.
Raiders guard Gabe Jackson also was ejected for pushing an official during the skirmish.
Both Talib and Crabtree were given unnecessary roughness penalties. The fight started after Talib pulled off Crabtree’s necklace at the end of a play. The two then engaged in a push-pull match that ended up knocking over at least a couple of people standing on the sideline before Broncos players swarmed them. After being briefly separated, both players threw punches at one another.
This isn’t the first time Talib has pulled off Crabtree’s necklace. Last season, Talib pulled off Crabtree’s chain during a game. After last year’s chain-snatching incident, Crabtree wasn’t pleased.
