Crabtree, Jackson, Talib ejected during Raiders-Broncos free-for-all

WATCH Wild Melee Breaks Out Between Raiders and Broncos AP

At the middle of it: Oakland receiver Michael Crabtree and Denver cornerback Aqib Talib (who have some history) - and just about everyone else.

Last year, he snatched Crabtree's chain off his neck like he was Debo asking Red what he had on his 40.

On the next play, a short run by Marshawn Lynch, Broncos' cornerback Aqib Talib and Crabtree engaged and after some shoving, the Pro Bowl cornerback reached in and once again ripped off the receiver's chain. Crabtree took Talib down, and a couple players came off the Broncos bench to help out Talib. Both were ejected from the game.

According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal's Michael Gehlken, Raiders offensive guard Gabe Jackson was tossed after making contact with a referee. That led to players from both sides joining the scrum. Only 3:07 remained in the game, and two of the best players in the game were ejected.

Courtois contract talks yet to be resolved
"Regarding my contract, that's something where Chelsea must deal with my agent". Courtois speaking about his Chelsea future.

Talib and Crabtree certainly have bad blood towards one another, but we have a feeling the Broncos' and Raiders' frustrating seasons probably contributed to the fisticuffs as well.

Then, in an odd scene, Talib had to leave the field through the Raiders sideline after his ejection. But it's not a surprise Talib and Crabtree were at the center of the skirmish.

On the third possession of the game, Crabtree and Talib got into more than a scuffle near the Broncos sideline at the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum.
