If there’s one day of the football season in which fans should behave with a little more affection for their fellow fans, Thanksgiving is a pretty strong candidate. But apparently, fan fights can occur even on these type of special days.
Look no further than AT&T stadium where Cowboys and Raiders fans were tasked to be in the same area together for multiple hours.
Once the beer started flowing, the teams started playing, and the game started to get competitive, fists started to fly.
The below video shows absolute chaos between opposing fan bases with multiple people attacking each other as others looked on.
The Cowboys and Raiders were each penalized 14 times in Thursday’s Thanksgiving Day game. The Cowboys were awarded a franchise-record 166 yards off those penalties; the Raiders 110.
The final gut punch penalty came on a 33-yard pass interference penalty on Cowboys cornerback Anthony Brown, who did not turn around for a deep pass thrown by Derek Carr on third-and-18 that set up the game-winning field goal attempt.
The Cowboys have been among the highest-penalized teams in the league and now they move into No. 1 in the league after Thursday’s game with 91 for 816 yards. The Raiders are second with 89 for 785 yards.
