Tom Brady: 'Miracle' to win AFC Championship game without Rob Gronkowski

12 March 2018

Included is a phone call from Brady to Gronkowski following New England's 24-20 AFC Championship game victory over Jacksonville.

"This offseason is gonna be about my family, and they deserve it", says Brady.

"I'm looking down at my thumb as it's split open, and I'm thinking 'I really don't know what happened to my thumb, but I know it doesn't feel good and I'm having a real hard time believing I'm going to go out and play well against the #1 ranked defense in four days'". "We knew the challenge it was going to be".

Gotham Chopra, the director of the Tom vs. Time documentary series, also thought Brady and the Patriots were going to win, revealing in a Facebook post last month that the loss to the Eagles forced the production team to rethink the series' final episode.

Indeed, to see someone like Dan Leavy fit in easily on the grand stage and become Ireland's best performer in every match this Six Nations campaign, is impressive.

"We lost Gronk in the first half of the game". It took everything we had to win it. "It is so great to be in that game, but to win that game, it is very tough".

When he got to talking about the Super Bowl, Brady's mood changed a bit. But those games live with you the rest of your life. He discussed seeing his kids crying after the defeat and turning the moment into a lesson in parenting.

"I'm sitting here three days after the year getting my Achilles worked on and my thumb and you go, 'What are we doing this for?" "The rawness of what happened will go away". But I gave everything I had.

"I'm proud of our efforts throughout the year", Brady said. We played good. We played from behind.

New England wasn't so lucky two weeks later against the Eagles in the Super Bowl.

Brady - who was previously tight-lipped about his personal life - said he liked making the docu-series. The Friday before the game, he said he thought, "Wow, maybe I can do this".

"It was a great experience for me because I got to share a lot of things that a lot of fans never get a chance to see", Brady said of the series. "The lingering thought from a Super Bowl game is, 'Man, if I had just made that one play or maybe those two plays, maybe the game is different". "You reach in different directions and know what feels comfortable, and what's not so comfortable", he said. "... That was a miracle of us winning without you out there, just so you know it. You have to kind of go all in".

The QB said that coming off last year's remarkable Super Bowl comeback against the Falcons, it felt like the right time to show more of himself off the field.
