Broncos' Aqib Talib, Raiders' Michael Crabtree ejected after massive fight

Oakland Raiders wide receiver Michael Crabtree looked like he had no intentions of playing football when he saw Denver Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib on Sunday.

Crabtree followed followed through on a block all the way into the sideline before tackling Talib to the ground.

After Crabtree had been removed from the pile by tight end Jared Cook, Talib found his way back to Crabtree away from the original dust up. Crabtree was swarmed by Denver players on the sideline, and the situation escalated into a full-on confrontation between both teams, highlighted by a helmetless Crabtree taking a right-handed swing at Talib in open field.

Raiders guard Gabe Jackson was also ejected for making contact with an official. Replays afterward appeared to show Talib connect with a punch on Crabtree, who had lost his helmet in the scuffle that spilled onto the Broncos' sideline.

Crabtree and Talib were in the middle of the type of huge brawl you won't see too often in the NFL.

If Crabtree was looking for revenge against Talib, it was his first opportunity.

Talib and Crabtree have a recent history of discontent. I think he plays with too much help. You're snatching chains in front of the police and take off running.
