-- The Patriots defense held the Rams to just three points in Super Bowl LIII earlier this month and Rams running back C.J. Anderson explained how “frustrating” this felt Tuesday on Undisputed.

“(The Patriots) slowed down a lot of our big plays and it was frustrating,” Anderson said. “That’s kind of how the game went. It sucks.”

Anderson also credited Bill Belichick for the element of surprise in his game planning.

“I think Bill does a great job of putting his team in the right position,” he said. “ … They gave us some different coverages that was not shown on tape.”

-- Glen “Big Baby” Davis has agreed to pay $15,000 to avoid jail time for his drug possession and distribution charges.

The former Celtic was arrested last February at a hotel in Maryland with 126 grams of marijuana and a briefcase containing $92,000.

Brandon Mead, Davis’ attorney, said prosecutors will dismiss the charges after the Davis pays the fine. He also said nothing indicates Davis was selling drugs.

Davis denied the charges while eating Popeyes chicken last March in a now-deleted Instagram video.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “I checked in with Gronk a couple of days ago. I talked with the Patriots about it. Right now, Rob is thinking it through. He is giving it a lot of thought. Rob will certainly I think make a decision in the foreseeable future. I don’t want to put any pressure on him and give him a timeframe, but I would imagine it will be sometime in the next couple of weeks.” -- Drew Rosenhaus, on when Rob Gronkowski will make a decision about whether or not to retire
