Patrick Mahomes to Make 1st Career NFL Start vs. Broncos

The Kansas City Chiefs have already clinched the AFC West division title, so head coach Andy Reid has chose to give his rookie first-round pick a chance to start his first National Football League game. The Chiefs are going to have a home playoff game and are looking good at the right time of the year, so fans should already be jazzed about the state of the team. He has yet to play in a regular-season game, but will get the chance against the Broncos. It will mark Mahomes' first regular season appearance in the NFL. "He will learn from it", Reid said of the rookie, via ArrowheadPride.com.

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.

Starting Mahomes not only protects starter Alex Smith has taken a fairly meaningless game in terms of the standings into a critical one for the future of the Chiefs, Smith, Reid, and Mahomes.


Mahomes looked great in the preseason, completing 34/54 passes for 390 yards and four touchdowns with no interceptions. A great person. Works hard.

Mahomes threw for 11,252 yards and 93 touchdowns in three seasons with Texas Tech.
