Things got super awkward in Jerry Jones’ box at AT&T Stadium on Sunday.

As the Dallas Cowboys wrapping up its 24-20 defeat of the Detroit Lions in their NFC Wild Card Game, the team’s owner was obviously ecstatic. And from that excitement, one of the most awkward group hugs of all time was born, thanks to New Jersey governor Chris Christie.

Christie, a lifelong Cowboys fan, enjoyed the game with Jones from the owner’s VIP box. When Dallas won, Christie joined in on a hug between Jones and his son, Stephen Jones, and needless to say, it was uncomfortable.

We apologize if you have trouble erasing that image from your memory.

Luckily, their divisional round game will be against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field, where Christie likely won’t have a seat.
