Three players were ejected following a brawl between the Oakland Raiders and Denver Broncos on Sunday.

The fight started early in the first quarter when Oakland receiver Michael Crabtree blocked Denver cornerback Aqib Talib on a run play. Crabtree pushed Talib to the ground on the Broncos sideline, and a fracas ensued due to Talib snatching a chain from Crabtree's neck. 

Players from both teams ran over to the sideline area to join in, and Raiders offensive lineman Gabe Jackson appeared to throw punches. Jackson also made contact with an official and was ejected.

Talib ripped Crabtree's helmet off and threw it at him, and Crabtree went back at Talib in the end zone before teammate Johnny Holton joined in shoving Talib.

Crabtree and Talib were ejected for fighting.

Talib and Crabtree had a run-in in Week 17 last season when Talib ripped Crabtree's chain off his neck. 

The Broncos tried to come back from a heavy deficit in the game, but lost 21-14 against the Raiders. This is the first time in 50 years the Broncos have lost seven in a row.
