There’s no love lost between Oakland Raiders wide receiver Michael Crabtree and Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib. It was just last season that Talib disrespected Crabtree by yanking off his gold chain during a game which led to a fight between the two players.
During today’s game, Crabtree got into it with Talib again after he blocked the Broncos cornerback out of bounds on a play. Both players went go to the ground, and punches were thrown. Crabtree was then swarmed by several Denver players on the sideline. The situation escalated when a helmetless Crabtree started throwing haymakers at Talib in the middle of the field.
At the end of the fight, Marshawn Lynch played peacemaker, escorting Talib out towards the locker room:

Crabtree and Talib were both ejected for their role in the fight. Raiders’ lineman Gabe Jackson made contact with a referee and was also ejected.
The NFL is surely going to drop some heavy fines on Crabtree and Talib.
