Raiders' Michael Crabtree, Broncos' Aqib Talib ejected after fight

Crabtree was ejected from Sunday's game against the Broncos, Vic Tafur of The Athletic Bay Area reports.

Photos and videos indicated Talib may have again pulled a chain from Crabtree's neck during the scuffle.

With the Chiefs unexpectedly losing earlier in the day to the Bills, the Broncos-Raiders matchup suddenly had an extra bit of importance in the race for the AFC West. It was the Raiders' first interception of the season and came two plays after Paxton Lynch had a touchdown pass to running back Devontae Booker overturned.

Will unpleasantries resume when both teams walk down the Oakland Coliseum tunnel for halftime?
