NFL Collective Bargaining Agreement

Article 37
Postseason Pay

Section 1

A four-tiered (“wild card” game, division playoff game, conference championship and Super Bowl game) play-off system will be used and continued throughout the term of this Agreement. Any player on a Club that has earned a first-round bye will be paid an amount equal to the amount received by players on a non-Division Winner participating in a “wild card” game for that Club’s bye week, provided such player is on the Club’s 53-player Active/Inactive List or the Club’s Reserve/Injured List as of the Sunday immediately preceding such Club’s Division Play-off game.
