WATCH: Cowboys, Raiders trade jabs amid Thanksgiving scuffle
Thursday Night Football on Thanksgiving produced a rather testy contest between the Dallas Cowboys and the Las Vegas Raiders. Two players were ejected from the game after getting in a scuffle on the sidelines that nearly caused an all-out brawl between the two sides.
Cowboys CB Kelvin Joseph and Roderic Teamer of the Raiders were both forced to take an early shower after this heated incident:

Punches were thrown and a lot of players got involved in the melee. It’s a good thing cooler heads prevailed in this one as it could have gotten real ugly for both teams here.
There was a lot riding in this game for both squads not only because the entire nation was watching this Thanksgiving spectacle. The 7-3 Cowboys are looking for a bounceback victory after suffering a 19-9 defeat at the hands of the Kansas City Chiefs last week.
The Raiders, who have been through a tumultuous past few weeks amid the Jon Gruden scandal, are in dire need of a win after three straight losses. They’re coming off an embarrassing 32-13 blowout loss against the Cincinnati Bengals from Week 11. There’s no better way for Las Vegas to get out of their slump than to secure a huge win on Thanksgiving.
