Chiefs Rookie Patrick Mahomes To Start At QB Sunday Vs. Broncos

Chiefs Rookie Patrick Mahomes To Start At QB Sunday Vs. Broncos

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 risky and star-laden Denver 'D'. With the Chiefs locked into their playoff spot, Reid will use Week 17 to rest key starters and get younger guys like Mahomes some reps.

This is the flawless scenario both for Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs in general.

Chiefs fans were just a tad excited on Wednesday about the news that rookie quarterback Patrick Mahomes would make his first National Football League start Sunday at Denver. The Chiefs traded up on draft day this year to nab Mahomes with the 10th overall pick, and the Texas Tech product is considered Kansas City's quarterback of the future, although he has not taken a snap yet this season.

If Mahomes is starting though, I can assume other starters will be sitting out. His reemphasis on Hunt and dialing up shot plays for Smith has been part of a Chiefs offensive resurgence including averaging 30.75 points over the past month - up seven points over the previous four games.

Nevertheless, there's been some speculation that the Chiefs will look to part ways with Smith this offseason and hand the offense over to Mahomes. As such, they are taking this opportunity to give Mahomes his first career start. He also made a number of dazzling plays.
