Raiders-Cowboys game turns violent with bloody brawl and punches after match – .

A Raiders’ punt in the third quarter of their Thanksgiving game against the Cowboys turned into a savage brawl, leading to two expulsions and a bloody referee in a game that got more than a little noisy.

As AJ Cole’s punt went out of bounds, Roderic Teamer and Kelvin Joseph kept pushing as they stumbled off the field to the back of the Las Vegas bench. Joseph shoved Teamer onto the turf before Raiders’ safety jumped and backed up, with nearly two dozen other players heading for the brawl in the process.

Images shown after everyone broke up had a photo of referee Tom Hill – who was working his 355th career game on Thursday, according to his Pro Football Reference page – with a bloody stain on his chin, although it was not not know when during the brawl Hill’s cut open.

Additional images showed the cut covered with a bandage.

Then a post-game segment on ESPN showed Dallas defensive tackle Trysten Hill hitting Raiders guard John Simpson as the teams met on the field. Las Vegas defensive end Maxx Crosby, who finished with a tackle and a quarterback, started heading towards Hill when the video was cut, and a subsequent shot showed around eight players pushing into a scrum near midfield.

Dallas and Las Vegas totaled 28 penalties and 276 penalty yards, season-highs for both teams, according to the Associated Press, in the Raiders’ 36-33 overtime win, ending their three-game losing streak. in a row and beating their record over .500 for the season.

A costly pass interference penalty on Anthony Brown’s third down – his fourth penalty of the game, all four coming on third down – helped the Raiders turn a 3rd and 18 into a first down and possible field goal, which Daniel Carlson kicked 29 yards for the win.

The Cowboys offense rebounded after scoring just nine points in last week’s loss to the Chiefs, but still lost for the third time in four games to drop to 7-4 this season. They travel to New Orleans and face the Saints in next week’s Thursday Night Football, the first of three straight road games for Dallas as they hold a two-game advantage over the Eagles in the NFC East. . Las Vegas welcomes Washington next weekend.
