Today, Karl Joseph and the upstart Cleveland Browns play in the NFL’s Divisional Round against Patrick Mahomes and the electric Kansas City Chiefs.

After finishing the year with an 11-5 record, the Browns were able to knock off the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Wild Card round last week, 48-37. The Chiefs are coming off of a bye week, as they finished the year with a 14-2 record and the number one overall seed in the AFC.

Joseph is in his first season with the Browns, after spending his first four seasons in the league with the Raiders. He was selected 14th overall in the 2016 NFL Draft.

During his time with the Raiders, Joseph never experienced a playoff run past the first round. Compiling a 12-4 record in 2016, the Raiders were knocked out by the Houston Texans, 27-14, after Derek Carr was ruled out for the season prior to the contest.

Tune-in to cheer on Joseph and the Browns today. The game kicks off at 3:05 p.m. and will broadcast on CBS.
