Broncos-Raiders brawl during game

Crabtree and Talib were in the middle of the type of huge brawl you won’t see too often in the NFL. Crabtree blocked Talib out of bounds and kept on blocking him well into the sideline. It was wholly unnecessary to the play. Crabtree took Talib down, and a couple players came off the Broncos bench to help out Talib. That led to players from both sides joining the scrum.
