Oakland Raiders wide receiver Michael Crabtree and Denver Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib got into a fight on Sunday. It was the first-time that these two players have played in a game since last year’s chain snatching incident.

Talib snatched Crabtree’s chain in the final regular season game for both teams last season. Crabtree missed the first meeting between the two teams in Denver, Colorado earlier this season.

Talib said after snatching his chain last time felt like Crabtree was flaunting the chain. Talib reported snatched the chain once again that Crabtree reportedly used tape, along with a black shirt, that he thought maybe would protect his chain.

However, on the play in question, Talib snatched the chain, then retaliated by driving Talib out of bounds, before the two fell to the ground. Crabtree was furious.

After being broken up by their teammates, the two went at it again, as Crabtree and Talib threw punches at each other. Crabtree was so angry that he did not care that Talib still had his helmet on when a punch was thrown.

Both players were ejected from the contest in the first quarter after the fight. In addition, Raiders guard Gabe Jackson was also ejected from the game.

A few weeks ago, Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback and Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green got into a fight. However, neither player was suspended — and the Raiders and Broncos will hope that neither one of their players will get suspended, as well.
