The Dallas Cowboys defeated the Detroit Lions 24-20 on Sunday in an NFC Wild Card Playoff Game.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones had a special guest visitor in his personal press box to watch the game — current New Jersey Governor Chris Christie.

Christie has known for being a controversial politician, and his controversy extends out to his favorite sports teams. Being born in New Jersey, and growing up in the New York area, due to proximity, people usually choose between the New York Giants, Jets or Philadelphia Eagles (if you’re closer to Philadelphia).

Christie grew up a Cowboys fan, and he and Jones exchanged in an embrace immediately following the Cowboys victory.
