Lengthy Mass Brawl Breaks Out On Sideline During Broncos Vs Raiders

Flags flew on the sideline during last night's game between the Broncos and the Raiders after a mass brawl involving players from both sides broke out on the sideline.

Three players - Aqib Talib, Michael Crabtree and Gabe Jackson - were ejected following the incident which had its origins in clashes between Broncos cornerback Talib and Raiders wide-receiver Crabtree.

There is history between the two: last season, Talib ripped a gold chain from Crabtree's neck during a game. Last night, something similar happened.

On a play where Crabtree was blocking Talib, the two ended up tangled on the ground on the sideline. Talib appeared to again pull the chain from Crabtree's neck and the brawl ensued.

At one point, when the skirmish had migrated to the end zone, a helmetless Crabtree tried to punch Talib, who was still wearing his helmet.
