Things were heating up in the Kansas City Chiefs and Oakland Raiders game Thursday. In what’s been an offensive shootout so far, tensions started flaring midway through the second quarter.
As Raiders quarterback Derek Carr tried to move forward for extra yardage on a run, all hell broke loose. Chiefs cornerback Marcus Peters came in on a hit as Carr was going to the ground, which set off Oakland’s offensive line.
A scuffle ensued between the Chiefs’ defense and the Radiers when suddenly running back Marshawn Lynch sprinted in off the sideline to get in the fight. He started shoving Chiefs players and was grabbed by a referee. Without looking to see who grabbed him, Lynch started shoving back and made contact with the official. He was flagged on the play for joining the confrontation and making contact with the ref and was ejected from the game.

The Chiefs were ahead in the game when Lynch was tossed, 17-14, and the Raiders subsequently had a field goal blocked.
