Crabtree kept pushing Talib out of bounds after the play was over.

Aqib Talib and Michael Crabtree couldn't contain themselves.

When the altercation did finally subside, both the receiver and cornerback were ejected from the contest. Crabtree played jewelry-less on Sunday.

Raiders guard Gabe Jackson was also ejected for touching an official.

However, it's also still a little amusing simply because of how ridiculous it is - both Crabtree's insistence on wearing the chain knowing that he'd be playing Talib and Talib's infatuation with it.

Crabtree and Talib have a history with each other that is likely the source of the bad blood between the players. Now both teams will have to finish it out without one of their best players. That got them both kicked out. Speaking of Lynch, the popular running back amusingly ensured Talib's safe passage to the locker room by escorting the rival cornerback through the Raiders sideline into the tunnel.

It was the second time in an AFC West game the Raiders lost a key player for involvement in a fight.

Then, in an odd scene, Talib had to leave the field through the Raiders sideline after his ejection. In fact, it was an unlikely source who was able to get Talib to calmly exit the gridiron.
