The move sparked a big melee, with Crabtree and Talib each throwing punches at eachother.

Talib and Crabtree had moments in last season's two meetings when they were close to a confrontation, including when Talib ripped a necklace off Crabtree during a game.

After Crabtree had been removed from the pile by tight end Jared Cook, Talib found his way back to Crabtree away from the original dust up.

Following a four-yard first down run by Marshawn Lynch with 12:30 left in the first quarter, Denver Pro Bowl cornerback Chris Harris Jr. remained down on the field, having suffered an apparent injury.

Past year the two players got into a heated confrontation, causing Talib to snatch Crabtree's chain off his neck during a game. Crabtree said previous year. I think he's fake. He talks too much. Crabtree didn't have his helmet on, but he was still willing to fight Talib.

"Snatching chains on the field, like what you accomplish?" "He's just been wearing that chain all year and it just been growing on me", Talib said via the Mercury News.

This wasn't the first rematch since that happened, but it's the first one that Crabtree played in. Raiders players began pushing the Denver players circled around Crabtree, leading to a brawl between the teams.
