Cowboys defensive coordinator Mike Nolan got Tabasco sauce in eye during conference call, and Twitter didn't hold back


Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator Mike Nolan has had a rough 2020. We already know about his unit's woes on the football field — the abysmal, hard-to-fathom, record-breaking woes that have weaved nicely into the many story lines of the pitiful NFC Least.

One word that can be used to describe how the Cowboys have feebly attempted to stop opponents is "embarrassing." Even the lowly Washington Football Team, who entered Week 7 without having accumulated over 300 yards of offense in a single game, were able to gain 397 yards of total offense against Dallas in a 25-3 rout.

But is it possible that an off-field incident was the most embarrassing thing that's happened to Nolan thus far?

The golden rule of using hot sauce is to avoid those eyes at all costs. Tsk, tsk. Apparently, Nolan has never watched "Hot Ones" and taken note of the many athletes, actors and other celebrities who needed the reminder.

If you've ever scrolled through Twitter before, you'll know that happenings like this one don't go without their fair share of roasts and reactions. And, boy, were there some good ones.

Thankfully, Nolan says that his eye feels a lot better, though it was burning immediately afterward.
