Oakland Raiders receiver Michael Crabtree and Denver Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib have been ejected for mixing it up during the first quarter of a game at Oakland Alameda Coliseum.

That was pretty amusing.

Osweiler played the next three Broncos games against the Philadelphia Eagles, New England Patriots and Cincinnati Bengals.

On the second play of Oakland's second drive, Crabtree aggressively blocked Talib on a running play and drove him to the ground on the Broncos sideline. It was wholly unnecessary to the play.

But the fight between Crabtree and Talib ended up overshadowing the recent disarray. "I think tomorrow they're going to get some pictures done on it and then we'll go from there". Since the Raiders are only one game back of the Kansas City Chiefs and beat the Chiefs last time they played, if the Raiders match the Chiefs and Chargers in wins but beat the two teams next time they play, the Raiders can win the AFC West. Starting offensive guard Gabe Jackson was also ejected when he pushed a referee while trying to get involved.

The Raiders then dominated on the field after ending the longest season-opening interception drought in National Football League history. The tunnel for both locker rooms at the Raiders' stadium is located behind the Raiders bench.

Against the Raiders, Lynch flashed some of the skills and athleticism that made him the Broncos' first-round draft pick, No. 26 overall, in 2016.

There will be fines, maybe suspensions and a lost game for three key players. In the lower left hand corner of the below video, you can see what appears to be the punch Harris received.
