One of the more heated NFL feuds in recently memory was between cornerback Aqib Talib and wide receiver Michael Crabtree. The feud gained attention when Talib snatched Crabtree's chain off his neck, but it escalated into much more.

Playing on rival AFC West teams, the two were able to meet twice in the season, creating for extra drama. In Week 17 the season prior, Talib gave Crabtree a little extra contact, which did not go over well. After getting in each other's faces, that is when Talib broke Crabtree's chain.

This hatred continued into the next season, as shown by the video. Crabtree was able to get his hands on Talib when blocking him. The block went a little far, driving him to the sideline through a camera man and pushed him on the ground, before falling on top of him.

This started the brawl between the Denver Broncos and Oakland Raiders, which resulted in Crabtree throwing some punches at Talib, which was a bad look for multiple reasons. Along with failing to make contact, this only increased the fine Crabtree received more.
