WATCH: Final Episode of Tom Brady Facebook Documentary



    More than a month after the New England Patriots' crushing Super Bowl loss, the final installment in a six-part documentary series delving into the personal life of quarterback Tom Brady has finally been released.

    "Tom vs Time," filmed by Gotham Chopra for Facebook's video platform, Facebook Watch, focuses on the star quarterback preparing for the 2017 season, exploring his battle against time on the gridiron and how he balances his personal life.

    The sixth episode was originally slated for release soon after the Super Bowl. But Chopra decided to shake things up after the Patriots lost to the Philadelphia Eagles. 

    "That's a loaded question," Brady said after a moment when Chopra asked how the quarterback was feeling following the loss in the opening moment of Episode Six, "The End Game."

    "You play the game to be in those moments, and you play those games to have the chance to be in the Super Bowl, and when you don't come through, it's very painful," Brady continued.

    Brady also revealed the full extent of a hand injury he suffered during practice just before the AFC Championship showdown against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    "I'm looking down at my thumb as it split open, and I'm thinking, 'I really don't what happened to my thumb, but I know it doesn't feel good,' and I have a real hard time believing I'm going to be able to go out and play well against the number one ranked defense in the league in four days," Brady confessed.

    While reflecting on the team's painful 41 to 33 loss to the Eagles, the star quarterback shared what he told his children after the game.

    "I said to them, 'Look you guys, this is a great lesson. You know, we don't always win. We try our best, and sometimes it doesn't go the way we want,'" Brady said. "That's probably one of the best moments I've had as a parent, because you really feel like you're parenting, you know, and it speaks to growing up."

    However, he admitted that he hadn't quite found his off-season "rhythm" by the time of his final interview.

    When he first announced the project, Brady said he had been thinking about doing something like this for a long time, and the opportunity came up to partner with Facebook and Chopra.

    "I think we captured something special in this and I am proud of the entire team of people who worked hard to make it happen," he said at the time. "The docu-series is intimate, in-depth and more personal than anything I've released on my social channels, so I think it will be a great way of extending my reach to people on Facebook Watch."

    Chopra said the goal of the project "was to understand the anatomy of that greatness" Brady has exhibited on the field over the past 18 seasons.
