This is the heavyweight Internet bout we've all been waiting for: the Oakland Raiders vs. One Direction.

"'I support the Raiders, said no one ever!" 1D member Harry Styles jawed during a concert in Kansas City on Tuesday night:

Oakland was having none of that, though. The team's Twitter account leaped into action by roping in Styles' bandmate, Liam Payne, wearing a—yup—Raiders cap.

Here's hoping football fans at the boy band's concerts continue to receive commentary from One Direction.
