Tom Brady is coming to terms with his team not winning Super Bowl LII on Sunday. 

Days after the Philadelphia Eagles beat the New England Patriots 41 to 33, the 40-year-old quarterback took to Instagram to share a photo from the game and a lengthy note about his feelings following the loss. 

"It has taken me a few days to reflect on our SB loss as well as the great season our team had. There are many emotions when you come up short of your goal," Brady began. "And they are all part of learning and growing in this journey of life. Learning turns everything into a positive. And the number one feeling I have had the past four days is gratitude."

It has taken me a few days to reflect on our SB loss as well as the great season our team had. There are many emotions when you come up short of your goal. And they are all part of learning and growing in this journey of life. Learning turns everything into a postitive. And the number one feeling I have had the past 4 days is gratitude. Gratitude to my teammates for the incredible effort given all season regardless of the challenges we faced. Gratitude toward my coaches for the effort and sacrifice they make to put us players in the best position to win. Gratitude to the NEP organization for supporting us on our very challenging and difficult journey. Gratitude to the Philadelphia Eagles team and organization for bringing out the best in us and being gracious winners (as well as congratulations on winning the championship) Gratitude toward our fans who showed up every week to cheer us on and commit their time and energy and love and support to what our goals are. And gratitude to my family and friends who continue to love and support my dreams. Thank you all. I love you all. Best, Tom
