Oakland Raiders fans are among the most raucous and passionate supporters in the NFL, so it's no surprise they had a strong reaction to Antonio Brown leaving their team and signing with the New England Patriots.

Before the Raiders hosted the rival Denver Broncos in the final game of Week 1 on Monday night, a bunch of fans gathered outside the stadium and made their thoughts on Brown known.

Raiders fans also burned Brown jerseys in a scene that's been quite common over the last few years. Warning: this video also contains NSFW language.

Raiders fans don't need any more reasons to dislike the Patriots. The famous "Tuck Rule" game from the 2001 NFL playoffs is still fresh in the minds of fans all over the Bay Area. The two other playoff matchups between the Patriots and Raiders also had their share of controversial moments.

Despite all the drama and distractions Brown created for Oakland entering the 2019 season, the Raiders responded quite well Monday night. They beat the Broncos 24-16 and rookie running back Josh Jacobs scored two touchdowns.

Maybe it won't take too long for Raiders fans to move on from the veteran wide receiver's departure.
