It wouldn't be a Raiders game without some fan violence. And there was plenty of it during Thursday's Raiders-Chiefs game in Kansas City.

You may be the Raiders on the field, but they'll beat you in the stands!

The melee sent fans tumbling down the stands before eventually being put to a halt by police.

Fan violence at NFL games has been on the rise since 2011, according to a study by the Washington Post. And Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City is no stranger to the abuse. In 2013 a fan was beaten to death a parking lot outside the stadium, according to The Post.

And Oakland is no different. A fan wearing a Jets jersey was punched by a Raiders fan a year ago and he suffers from seizures to this day, The Post says.
