How much players earn in the playoffs

       In the Playoffs, individual contracts and salaries no longer apply. Each player on the 53-man roster (and injured reserve at game time) take home the same amount of money during the first two rounds of the playoffs, from the starting quarterback to the third-string cornerback.

Players will receive the following amounts for the 2020 NFL postseason, per the latest collective bargaining agreement:


Wild Card round:

Division Winners playing in Wild Card: $33,000

Non-Division winning Wild Card teams/Division Winner with 1st round bye: $30,000


Divisional Playoff Game: $33,000


Conference Championship Game: $59,000


Super Bowl

- Winning Team: $150,000

- Losing Team: $75,000


The maximum a player can make in the 2020 playoffs is $275,000, but they must play on a team that won its division but is playing in the Wild Card round (Pittsburgh Steelers, Tennessee Titans this season). Payments during the playoffs must be made within 15 days after a game has been played.

Postseason money for Wild Card and Divisional Playoff games is slightly less than the weekly pay of a player making the $610,000 first-year player minimum salary ($35,882 per week).

In the conference championships and in the Super Bowl, certain players could see the payout cut in half.


Players getting the full amount

1. Players on the 53-man roster on the active or inactive list when the game is played that have been on the roster for at least three previous games (regular season or playoffs).

2. Players on the 53-man roster not on the active or inactive list when the game is played but have been on the roster for at least eight previous games (regular season or playoffs).

3. Veterans (at least one year of service) put on injured reserve during the regular season that are still under contract when the game is played.


Players receiving half

1. Players on the 53-man roster when the game is played that have been on the roster for less than three previous games (regular season or playoffs).

2. Players on the 53-man roster not on the active or inactive list when the game is played but have been on the roster for at least three and no more than seven previous games (regular season or playoffs).

3. First-year players put on injured reserve during the regular season that are still under contract when the game is played.
