Tom Brady: Patriots' Super Bowl loss was 'a great lesson' for my children

ABC News(NEW YORK) -- Tom Brady, after reflecting on the New England Patriots' Super Bowl loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, says the defeat was an opportunity to teach his kids a valuable lesson.

Brady's three children -- Vivian, 5, John, 10, and Benjamin, 8, -- were visibly upset after watching his team lose.

"That was the first time that I'd seen my kids really react in that way," Brady, 40, said on his Facebook show Tom vs. Time.

"You know, Benny was crying, Vivi was crying and they were sad for me and sad for the Patriots. But I just said to them, 'Look you guys this is a great lesson. We don't always win. We try our best and sometimes it doesn't go the way we want.'"
