New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady thanked fans on Wednesday for supporting the team this season.

The letter comes after the Patriots lost the AFC Championship game against the Denver Broncos on Sunday 20-18. 

"Our team fought hard all year, right down to the finally play. I’m proud of the effort we all put in to prepare each game as if it were our last," Brady said in the letter.
