Chiefs starting rookie Patrick Mahomes vs Broncos

28 December, 2017, 01:10 | Author: Hannah Francis
  • Broncos are 3.5-point favorites over Chiefs in Week 17

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'.

"Every snap he gets is a valuable snap for him", Reid said of Mahomes.

Rookie first-round pick Patrick Mahomes is going to get the start at quarterback, allowing Alex Smith to rest for the team's playoff game.




This is the flawless scenario both for Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs in general. So, it makes sense for starting quarterback Alex Smith and numerous other regulars to get a week off before the playoffs. Kansas City has gotten hot of late en route to winning three straight games after losing six of the team's previous seven contests.

The former Texas Tech standout and rocket-armed Mahomes' starting debut will also mark a great opportunity for red-hot offensive coordinator Matt Nagy.

He went on to say he has no expectations for Mahomes and he just wants him to get reps and have some fun. There's no guarantee that ends up happening. However, a lot of fans took to social media to express their joy at the news of Mahomes' first start. But if Mahomes play well, it could make the Chiefs a little more comfortable in moving on from Smith this summer.
