On Feb. 3, the New England Patriots saw themselves become Super Bowl champions with their win over the Los Angeles Rams in Atlanta. One week to the day of their achievement, two of them went from earning honors to presenting them.
Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman and safety Devin McCourty were on hand to present the opening award at Sunday night's Grammy Awards, announcing the winner of the award for best pop duo/group performance.
Fittingly, just a week after beating a foe from Los Angeles, Edelman and McCourty were standing in the Staples Center, home to the Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers.
"L.A., thank you for the cheers," McCourty said. "Also, thank you for the boos. I appreciate you supporting your community."
McCourty announced Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper's song "Shallow" as the winner, and Edelman gave the music superstar her trophy to end a whirlwind of a week for two of the Patriots' stars.
