Aqib Talib snags Michael Crabtree's chain again

"Where Aqib Talib and Michael Crabtree got into it and it escalated, I think they have a little bit of history with the chain snatching from years back".

The brawl started after Crabtree aggressively blocked Talib on a running play, pushing the defender long after the two had run out of bounds and the play was dead.

"I hope the league sees how it started". Harris doesn't believe Crabtree had any intentions of playing football on Sunday and was just looking for a fight.

Crabtree, Talib and Raiders offensive lineman Gabe Jackson were ejected, with Jackson's coming because he pushed an official.

The fireworks came early during Sunday's matchup between the Denver Broncos and the Oakland Raiders, though we're not talking about offense here. See, I didn't come out there to fight and wrestle with him, you know what I'm saying?

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network speculated on Monday morning that neither Crabtree nor Talib would face additional punishment aside from the ejection and possibly a fine.

Mystery surrounds Michigan's game plan, as starting quarterback Brandon Peters is questionable due to an undisclosed injury. Barrett later injured his right knee on a run in the third quarter, and watched the rest of the game from the sideline.

The Oakland Raiders WR clearly had the same principles on Sunday as he and Talib squared off on the field and threw punches at each other before teammates came in and broke it up.

Expect the National Football League to hand out plenty of fines for this brawl. Talib was suspended for one game in the 2015 season for poking then-Indianapolis Colts tight end Dwayne Allen in the eye.

"I'll say this, I'm not sure how it all started", he said.

Joseph was then asked if he expects consequences from the league.

"I told our guys I don't want it, but once it happens, how does a guy not defend himself?" It eventually turned into a full-on brawl with punches being thrown and others getting involved. I told our guys I don't want it, but once it happens, how does a guy not defend himself? If you have no chance, you defend yourself as a man.
