Super Bowl XLIX gets under way in just a few days with the Seattle Seahawks going up against the New England Patriots at University of Phoenix Stadium in Arizona. Someone has to win and someone has to lose, but losing is much sweeter with each player on the losing team guaranteed a bonus check of $49,000 just for showing up.

For the winning the team, the prize is even better, with a payout this year of $97,000, according to the 2014 NFL Media Guide.
