    Does anybody know if NFL players get monetary bonuses for being in and winning playoff games? I know the Super Bowl and Pro Bowl winners and losers get a bonus but I'm not sure about playoff games.

    Just curious. :bolt:

    Coaches get paid too. Probably more of a bonus to them than the players.
