During Sunday's Super Bowl, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady broke Joe Montana's record of 11 Super Bowl touchdowns.

The record was officially broken when Brady connected with Danny Amendola for a four-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter, Sports Illustrated reports. Brady was in his sixth Super Bowl, and threw two touchdowns during the second quarter. Hall of Famer Montana never lost a Super Bowl, and led the San Francisco 49ers to four championships in the 1980s. Catherine Garcia

Not every Super Bowl commercial goes over well, and this year's offering from Jeep received less-than-positive buzz on Twitter.

Featuring the patriotic gem "This Land Is Your Land," the ad started off with scenes from across the United States — skateboarders at the beach in California, the Empire State Building in New York, and the deserts and forest in between. Then, it went international, with images of the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro, the Great Wall of China, kangaroos in Australia, and more. It ended with a reminder to take care of the planet — "The world is a gift, play responsibly" — but was met with anger from people who disagreed with the use of song and the overall message.

Jeep hasn't responded to the criticism, and its last tweet was a shout out to Marc Scibilia,  the singer featured in the commercial. Watch the ad below.—Catherine Garcia

Katy Perry came roaring into the University of Phoenix stadium on a giant lion for the Super Bowl Halftime Show, and it only got crazier from there with dancing sharks, robotic chess pieces, and lots of pyrotechnics.

The show had numerous costume changes — Perry was everything from a sparkly, star-spangled diva for "Firework" to the chicest Hot Dog on a Stick employee for "California Gurls" — as well as cameos from Missy Elliot, Lenny Kravitz, and the "More You Know" star. Take a look at photos and a video montage from the dazzling performance below.—Catherine Garcia
