Patrick Mahomes to start at QB for Chiefs vs. Broncos

Kansas City Chiefs Rookie QB Pat Mahomes To Make 1st Career Start This Week

With the Kansas City Chiefs having the AFC West's division crown all wrapped up, head coach Andy Reid has decided that it's time to see what rookie quarterback Patrick Mahomes can do. With that in mind, Reid chose to give the rookie his first start.

Reid said he's not anxious about the move to play Mahomes in the finale rankling Smith heading into the postseason. It will be the first career start for Mahomes, who was selected 10th overall in this year's draft and could potentially be Kansas City's quarterback of the future.

But the job security of Broncos rookie head coach Vance Joseph may hinge in part on Sunday, so Mahomes is likely to get a full taste of a unsafe and star-laden Denver 'D'. He also made a number of dazzling plays.

The Chiefs traded a pair of first-round picks to move up and select Mahomes last April, so you know the team, particularly Reid, thinks highly of him. Mahomes is known as a gunslinger and it's likely that Matt Nagy, the team's offensive coordinator and playcaller, will give him a chance to show off his arm against a challenging secondary employed by the Broncos-one that includes Aqib Talib and Chris Harris.

He added, "Fortunately, we have a quarterback who understands it (Smith). At the same time, I've been trying to do the best I can every single week", Mahomes aid. "Whatever it takes to get a win is the biggest thing".

Smith doesn't appear to be in danger of being benched, especially since the Chiefs have broken out of their midseason funk and won three games in a row.
