The top 10 Super Bowl 55 commercials, according to USA TODAY Ad Meter

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).
