Waiting for an elevator after the game with some other Patriots' wives, Gisele was videotaped saying, "I can't believe they dropped the ball so many times. My husband cannot f---king throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time."

Earlier in the week, Bundchen reportedly sent out an email to loved ones asking for their support before the big game.

"I feel Tommy really needs our prayer, our support and love at this time," Bundchen reportedly wrote.

Bundchen, 31, and Brady, 34, married in 2009 and have a 2-year-old son, Benjamin. The NFL star also has a 4-year-old son, Jack, with ex-girlfriend Bridget Moynahan.
