Making the Super Bowl has enough perks as is, but the winning team on Sunday will get a bonus for making it to the championship game, but so will the losers.
According to Ralph Vacchiano over at The Blue Screen, each player on the winning team will receive $78,000 while every player on the losing team will go home with $40,000.
Sunday, the Giants play for their first Super Bowl title since 1991 and the biggest upset in football history. The Patriots play for a perfect 19-0 season and to be called the greatest team in football history. And at the same time winning the game is worth $38,000.
For a comparison, Corey Webster made $350,000 last season. He could potentially make 22% of his season pay in one day.
