He's dating a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader named Kelsi Reich, who, according to Yahoo!, likes country music, spinach-stuffed tortellini, and can hold Skittles in her dimples.

That may woo him when he's off the field but, after he scores a touchdown and sees his girlfriend booing, he may be less charmed next time she stuffs candy in her cheeks.

Nelson is well aware that the situation may be awkward.

“She works for the Dallas Cowboys and roots for the Dallas Cowboys, but I know she’ll have some inside joy if I do well,” Nelson told

"So it’s going to be a fun experience and I’m going to definitely be looking and record the TV copy and see if they show her a couple of times to see her reaction. It’s going to be fun. It’s something we’ve been looking forward to for some time and we’ve already been trash talking back and forth a little bit.”

This is Nelson's second year in the NFL and Sunday will be his first game against the Cowboys. His girlfriend has been a cheerleader with the team for four years.
