The Cowboys and Raiders tried serving knuckle sandwiches on Thanksgiving.
Turkey Day is a day to be grateful, happy, and grateful for each other’s company, but for at least one game in the Cowboys-Raiders game, those emotions were nowhere. At the start of the third quarter, the teams found themselves in a small scrum that reached the Las Vegas sideline.
After the sauce spilled, two players were kicked out. Cowboys defensive back Kelvin Joseph and Raiders defensive back Roderic Teamer were dismissed for their role in the affair.

Unfortunately, an official appears to have been caught in the crossfire. He sported a little bit of blood on his chin after helping to break up the dust.
All’s well that ends well, though: While the brawl was a pretty unsightly thing for a Thanksgiving game, the content doesn’t care about your little vacation, and a lot of people have brought their A-game meme afterwards.
It’s safe to say that Teamer and Joseph won’t be sending each other Christmas cards this year.
