The winning players stand to cash in on some serious bonus pay.

As if getting your name written into the history books and receiving a massive, diamond-encrusted title ring wasn't enough, Super Bowl-winning players also grab a nice salary bonus.

Well, it's actually much better than "nice." According to Andrew Brandt of ESPN, each of the players on the winning team will pull in a smooth $92,000. Not that the losers will be that bad off -- they'll rake in $46,000.

Because players receive bonuses for each level of the playoffs they reach, as well as one for winning their division, (which both the Broncos and Seattle Seahawks did), they've already racked up a significant amount of extra cash just by making it this far. According to NJ.com, the Super Bowl winners will have made a total of $180,000 during their playoff run.

Of course, all of that pales in comparison to the $1 million bonus head coach John Fox will pull in if his Broncos win the game.
