Bills wide receiver David Nelson said this week that he was looking to enjoy the situation if he reached the end zone against the Cowboys, as his girlfriend, Kelsi Reich, is a Dallas cheerleader. He got his chance in the second quarter of Sunday's game.
Nelson hauled in a 3-yard strike from quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick and proceeded to run up the sideline to where Reich was standing. He then embraced his longtime girlfriend before giving her the ball.
The Bills wideout noted during the week that Reich roots for the Cowboys — as you might expect — but that she'd have some inside joy if he did well. He said he planned on recording the game on TV to see her reaction, and he even admitted that the two had been trash talking back and forth a bit in anticipation of the game.
All things considered, it probably couldn't have gotten much better for Reich. She got to see her man hit paydirt, but it was Buffalo's only score of the day, as Tony Romo and Co. laid a 44-7 smackdown on the Bills.
