March 7 (UPI) — Tom Brady talks about the pain of losing Super Bowl LII in the final episode of his documentary series Tom vs Time.
The series finale drops at noon Monday on Facebook Watch.
Tom vs Time launched in January, offering football fans a rare glimpse into the personal and professional life of arguably the greatest quarterback of all time. The New England Patriots star used the episodes to talk about his family, relationship with trainer Alex Guerrero, history with the franchise and more.
Episode six chronicles Brady’s life immediately after the Patriots’ 41-33 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Feb. 4 at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minn. A trailer released Wednesday began with a narrator asking Brady how he was feeling.
“I’m feeling um…that’s a loaded question,” Brady responded.
A montage of the final play of the game rolled, as Brady described the heartbreaking defeat. The future Hall of Famer completed 28-of-48 passes for 505 yards and three touchdowns in the loss.
“You play the game to be in those moments,” he said. “And you play those games to have a chance to win the Super Bowl.”
“And when you don’t come through, it’s very painful. But football is the blink of an eye. That’s what you’ve gotta live with for the rest of your life.”
Brady, 40, already has five Super Bowl rings. He told his wife — supermodel Gisele Bündchen — that he wanted to win two more Lombardi trophies before retiring from the game. Brady was a first-team All-Pro in his 18th season. He led the league in passing attempts and passing yards, en route to his third NFL MVP Award.
“In the end, the Patriots fan in me didn’t get the storybook ending I desperately craved for our series Tom vs Time. But instead I got a moment in which our main hero — Tom — would learn something pretty valuable in the loss,” series creator Gotham Chopra said. “Hard to lament too much about that.”
