Patrick Mahomes to start against Broncos

Patrick Mahomes to start against Broncos

The Chiefs locked up the AFC West with a 29-13 victory over the Dolphins last weekend, and can not improve their playoff positioning against the Broncos.

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.

Mahomes, the 10th overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, is being groomed as Smith's successor, but his assignment Sunday doesn't signify a changing of the guard.

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. "He will learn from it", Reid said of Mahomes starting. Mahomes threw for over 500 yards and six touchdowns in that game.

Steelers rout Texans to clinch playoff bye
Taylor Heinicke made his National Football League debut and played two series before Yates returned early in the third quarter. The Steelers recorded first downs on their initial four snaps, quickly covering 57 yards before bogging down in the red zone.

Mahomes is only 22 years old, so keeping him on the bench to learn once more is an option, although smart money says general manager Brett Veach hands the keys to Mahomes for 2018.

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. He also made a number of dazzling plays.

Well, it took a bit longer than the other two first-round quarterbacks of the 2017 class, but Mahomes is finally making his debut.
