The Oakland Raiders jumped out to a 14-0 lead against the Denver Broncos on Monday night with a touchdown from rookie running back Josh Jacobs (followed by the extra point). When kicker Daniel Carlson lined up for the extra point, a chant broke out from Raiders fans at RingCentral Coliseum: “Fuck AB.”
“AB” is of course in reference to Antonio Brown, who was released by the Raiders on Saturday following a ridiculous saga, and predictably signed with the New England Patriots later in the day (and a video was released on Brown’s YouTube channel of him celebrating the Raiders’ release).
ESPN play-by-play man Steve Levy said, “If you can’t make out the chant, let’s just say it’s derogatory in the direction of AB.”
The “Fuck AB” chant could also be found pregame in Oakland.

Unfortunately, the Patriots don’t play in Oakland this season. That would be quite a scene.
