Raiders punter A.J. Cole III kicked the ball out of bounds with about 13 minutes left in the quarter. As the play was called, Raiders safety Roderic Teamer and Cowboys cornerback Kelvin Joseph wrestled each other to the ground rolling towards the stands on the Raiders sideline.
Several special teams players from both teams began to brawl as others attempted to break up the fight. Two players from the opposing teams each grabbed a handful of the other players helmet.
The fight only lasted several seconds but both Teamer and Joseph were ejected from the game with personal foul penalties.
After the fight, field judge Tom Hill was seen with a bloodied chin as he continued reffing the holiday game. Later, Hill covered his injury with a bandage.
The field judge was reported to be working his 355th career game, according to Pro Football Reference.
The Raiders won 36 to 33 on Thanksgiving for their first holiday win since 1968. It was the team’s fourth Thanksgiving game since then, with the previous two losses being to the Cowboys, according to the Associated Press.
The anger between the two teams didn’t subside. An ESPN camera caught the moment Cowboys defensive tackle Trysten Hill violently shoved Raiders guard John Simpson on the field after the game.
A small group of the players and coaching staff circled around the fight as the two players were separated.
A fine and possible suspensions may be handed down once the league reviews the incident.
Both teams had season highs in penalties and yards with the Cowboys, who sit as the NFL’s leader in penalty yards, recording 14 for a franchise-record 166 yards and the Raiders 14 for 110 yards, the AP reported.
The fights between the players weren’t the only physical brawls that broke out at the Thanksgiving game.
Two women were left covered in nachos when a quarrel broke out at the concession stand at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
Footage captured the shocking moment a woman, assumed to be a stadium staff member, jumped over the food counter in an attempt to chase another woman down.
The woman who hops the counter immediately slips on nachos that were already strewn on the ground.
As she gets up, she is promptly punched in the face by a woman nearly knocking her blue baseball cap off. The two women then continue throwing punches and pulling each others hair as a third woman in a Cowboys jersey attempts to separate them.
A crowd gathers around the fight as others begin to join in helping pull the women apart. The video ends with the woman who threw the first punch being dragged away.
Police told TMZ they made several arrests for intoxication but it is unclear whether or not either woman was taken into custody.
