New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie traveled to Wisconsin on Sunday to cheer on his team, the Dallas Cowboys, as it played the Green Bay Packers in a key NFL playoff game.

Reporters spotted Christie before the game near the 35-yard line posing for photos and talking to Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.

The Packers hosted the Cowboys in a key divisional playoff game — the first time Dallas has traveled to Lambeau Field in the postseason since the famed Dec. 31, 1967 "Ice Bowl." Ultimately, the Packers bested the Cowboys, 26 to 21.

Christie has earned the ire of critics and New Jersey Democrats for traveling to Texas several times in recent weeks to attend Cowboys games as a guest of Jones, who owns a company that operates the observation deck at One World Trade Center in New York. The skyscraper is owned and operated by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which Christie and New York Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo (D) control.

Jones dismissed concerns about his relationship with the governor in a recent interview.

“He’s a friend. … He’s gonna be true blue. I admire that in him. I hope he just keeps coming to games for about the next three, stirring it up out here. … He’s our mojo," Jones said of Christie during the interview, which aired Friday on ESPN’s “Mike & Mike in the Morning" program.

But Christie wasn't the only governor — or potential 2016 presidential candidate — in the stands.

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) is also braving the cold temperatures and has been talking up the game for several days on his social media accounts:

 Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), another Packers devotee and potential 2016 contender, also talked up the game — and the cold temps — on his Twitter account:

Once the game was over, Ryan worked in a jab at Christie and that awkward hug he had with Jones after last week's Cowboys game:
