Aqib Talib Snatches Michael Crabtree's Chain During Broncos-Raiders Brawl

Share

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.

Crabtree and Talib previously had issues with each other, dating back to their skirmish during Week 17 of the 2016 season.

After Crabtree threw a punch at Talib, a whole bunch of Raiders and Broncos players started going at it on the sideline.

Lynch, who made contact with an official, ended being suspended for a subsequent game. Last season, Talib snatched a chain off of Crabtree's neck, prompting Crabtree to confront him on the field.

Both Crabtree and Talib, unsurprisingly, were ejected for their actions. Talib appeared to again rip off a necklace Crabtree had been wearing Sunday afternoon. Harris was upset after the play and yelled toward the Raiders bench as he left the field. Marshawn Lynch was kind enough to escort Talib through the Raiders' sideline and into the tunnel. Raiders players began pushing the Denver players circled around Crabtree, leading to a brawl between the teams.

The game was scoreless when the players were ejected.
