-- One week after winning the Super Bowl, Julian Edelman and Devin McCourty were back on CBS to present an award at the 61st annual Grammy Awards.

While the two Patriots presented the “Best Pop Duo/Group Performance,” McCourty got in a shot at Los Angeles, noting the Patriots beat both the Chargers and Rams on the road to their sixth Super Bowl title.

“L.A., thank you for the cheers,” McCourty said. “Also, thank you for the boos. I appreciate you supporting your community.”

“We’re here tonight with music’s most valuable players to present a very super award: Best Pop Duo/Group Performance,” Edelman said, with a nod to being named Super Bowl MVP.

Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper won the award for “Shallow” and Lady Gaga accepted the award.

Before the show, Edelman posted photos of himself having fun at the Clive Davis Pre-Grammy party.

-- Jordan Spieth opened up on the Dan Patrick Show recently about what it’s like to play golf against Tom Brady, calling him “the most competitive human being I've ever met."

Spieth told a story of playing against Brady at Augusta National and said the Patriots quarterback really does not like to lose.

“I’m a big TB12 fan, big Tom fan,” Spieth noted before launching into the story.

“We had a two-on-two match and I ended up birdieing the 18th,” Spieth said. “He had a stroke on the 18th. I hit it in there to a few feet, and he drove it up almost too close to the green and tried to hit a flop shot, left it in the bunker, made bogey. The match was tied, so I won. He made bogey, I made birdie for a two-shot flip on the last. And you’re supposed to go in at Augusta and, you know, have lunch and hang out. And he didn’t say a word to me for like an hour and a half. I mean, the most competitive, like, I feel like I’ve very, very competitive, and he is the most competitive human being I’ve ever met.”

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "If (this is who we are) we won't last long. I've got to go back and look at, first and foremost, what I can do different to help. Our play out of the half at times this year has been really slow. That was again today but I think that started with our defense in the second quarter and you could kind of feel it going the other direction. Then we just got pounded again in the fourth." -- Brad Stevens, after the Celtics were booed off the court during their 123-112 loss to the Clippers on Saturday
