2016 NFL Playoffs: How Much Do the Players Make?

The NFL playoffs begin this weekend. Players contracts are

set up to pay throughout the season for the sixteen games they play. If they make the playoffs then the players are all paid the same(flat rate).

Here is a breakdown of last years 2015 Playoff/Super Bowl payouts. I would expect these numbers to increase in 2016 and putting up my best guess below the 2015.

• Wild-card game (division winners)    

2015 – $24,000

2016 – $26,000

• Wild-card game (non-division winners):

2015 – $22,000
2016 – $24,000

• Divisional playoff game
2015 – $24,000
2016 – $26,000

• Conference championship game
2015 – $44,000
2016 – $46,000

• Super Bowl winners
2015 – $97,000
2016 – $102,000

• Super Bowl losers
2015 – $49,000
2016 – $53,000
