Tom Brady has had his fair share of challenges on the field, but one of the biggest challenges of his 19-year career came off of it.
"Tom vs. Time," a six-episode docuseries that centered around Brady's life during the 2017 season, was released in January 2018. On Monday, the series won a Sports Emmy for Outstanding Serialized Sports Documentary.
Brady took to Instagram on Tuesday and opened up about what went into the making of "Tom vs. Time."
When I was approached by @gchopra at ROS, Facebook and @brawitz to explore this opportunity, it was a bit nerve-racking. This was so outside of the things I have always done and I wasn't sure if we could pull it off. The reality was, before the filming began and even during the filming, it was on and off again at least 5 times. There were a lot of moving parts on all sides and it took a lot of work at every level to pull it together and have it ready for viewing 16 months ago. The Patriots had an amazing season of many highs and lows that added humanity to the story. And it was so much fun to have my family and friends and all the people who support me be a part of it. I couldn't have been happier with the final product and people getting to see another side of me besides what most people see every Sunday. I can be a very focused and driven person on the field (and off too), but as most of my friends and teammates know, what you saw is just plain me. I can't thank you enough for going on the journey with me. You all have made it all worth it, and to win an Emmy highlights the incredible work of everyone involved - the @religionofsports team, the @shadowlion team, @facebook, the @patriots, @nflfilms @tb12sports and my family, friends and teammates. Thank you. I love you all!

It's clear filming the series was a daunting process, but ultimately it was all worth it for the six-time Super Bowl champion as he adds yet another accolade to his résumé.
