On Sunday, Michael Crabtree and Aqib Talib got into a full-fledged brawl that led to both players being ejected.
But according to Broncos CB Chris Harris, the entire ordeal could’ve been avoided if the referees had seen Crabtree sucker punch him earlier in the game.
Harris told the following to Nick Kosmider of the Denver Post:
“I guess his initiative was to come out there and fight today, I guess it wasn’t (to) play football.”
“He sucker-punched me. I’ve never seen that in the NFL.”
Here’s that play Harris believes caused the brawl, that happened one play before:
This is the punch in the gut Chris Harris Jr is talking about from Michael Crabtree. Harris was slow to get up. Happened the play just before the Talib chain ripping and ensuing fight. pic.twitter.com/hKGrsBRiDK

The NFL league offices will look into the situation and asses if any additional fines and suspension will come out of this.
