Super Bowl history was made both on and off the field in 2021.
While the Tampa Bay Buccaneers took care of the Kansas City Chiefs, which earned ring No. 7 for quarterback Tom Brady, Rocket Mortgage triumphantly created a rare footnote to the Big Game.
The historical feat?
It was the first time since 2007 that one brand took the top-two spots in the USA TODAY Ad Meter ratings, an achievement that first occurred way back in 1995 with Pepsi (when a very young Tom Brady was still looking ahead to his college career).
