Tensions were high going into Week 12 of the NFL football season. The rivalry between the Denver Broncos and the Oakland Raiders got pretty heated about three minutes into the game when a fight broke out. The fight began between Broncos' Aqib Talib and Raiders' Michael Crabtree, both players were ejected from the game.
Dozens of team members from both sides got involved, as it took a few minutes to get everything settled down. Raiders' Gabe Jackson was also ejected from the game after reportedly shoving an official during the madness.
The Broncos are dead last in the AFC West, suffering six season losses in a row. They have a current record 3-7.
The team went into last week's game with a lot of pressure on the offense, but they were not able to deliver. This week Paxton Lynch started, in hopes to turn things around for the remainder of the season.
Raiders are third in the AFC West with a 4-6 record, not much better than the Broncos.
Neither teams have been able to score in the first quarter. The second quarter has been off to a rough start for the Broncos after a touchdown was overturned, following a Raiders interception.
