“I came out there to play football on Sunday” – The Denver Post

Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib and Raiders receiver Michael Crabtree have a history that most know about and others learned about last season with The Chain Snatch. In the teams’ 2016 season finale, Talib snapped the gold necklace dangling from Crabtree’s neck, laughed about it on the bench, then helped the Broncos trounce the Raiders in a game that carried little meaning.

Chain Snatch 2.0 in Oakland on Sunday escalated into a full-on fight, with punches thrown, Crabtree’s helmet yanked off and three players getting ejected.

Talib could now face a penalty from the league — a fine, maybe even a suspension.

“I’ll say this, I’m not sure how it all started. Now, if the league steps in and they hand something down, that’s their decision,” said Broncos coach Vance Joseph, who added that Talib will not be disciplined internally. “… Again, I’m not going to speak for the Raiders, I’m going to speak for our guys. I told our guys I don’t want it, but once it happens, how does a guy not defend himself? Punches are being thrown and helmets are off — I don’t want it to happen, but if it does happen, you can’t blame a man for defending himself. I want our guys to simply defuse and walk away. That’s what I want.”
