While Thanksgiving is a time for family and friends to gather together, tempers flared yesterday at the Cowboys Raiders game. During the Dallas Cowboys’ overtime loss to the Los Vegas Raiders, there was drama in the concourse at AT&T Stadium. A stadium worker jumped the counter to fight with a fan in line for the concession stand.

Based on the video, it is difficult to tell what triggered the confrontation. While the video shows several women exchanging blows, the build-up and resolution are unclear. According to TMZ, police officers made several arrests due to intoxication during the game. However, whether any of the women involved were arrested is unknown. 

Fights on and off the field during Raiders-Cowboys Thanksgiving

While there was brawling in the concourse, the field also featured skirmishes during the Turkey Day game. Referees ejected Dallas corner Kelvin Joseph and the Raiders’ Roderic Teamer after the players exchanged punches early in the second half. After the game, there was another scuffle as the players were on the field after the game. National broadcast cameras picked up the confrontation here:

While there was plenty of action Thursday, the game is a blow to the Cowboys. They have now lost three of their last four games. That stretch has featured losses to the Broncos, Chiefs, and now the Raiders. As the losses stack up, the Cowboys are beginning to look less like the team pegged asone of the best in the NFL just earlier this month.

The Cowboys will next take the field against the New Orleans Saints next Thursday. With Amari Cooper and Ceedee Lamb missing time, the Cowboys have struggled to make up the offensive production. With the new 17 game schedule, there is still plenty of time for the Cowboys to right the ship, but they’ll need to do it sooner rather than later.
