Patrick Mahomes to start at QB for Chiefs 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'. Rather, with the Chiefs locked in as the AFC's No. 4 seed for the postseason, they'll give the rookie signal caller some valuable game experience, while affording Smith some rest.

But Smith has no guaranteed money remaining on his contract, and specualation has run rampant from the moment Kansas City sent the 27th overall pick and a 2018 first-rounder to Buffalo to move up and nab its potential future of the franchise that the clock is ticking on the incumbent Smith.

Having already clinched the AFC West division title, Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid announced rookie quarterback Patrick Mahomes will start the final game of the regular season against the Denver Broncos.

If Mahomes is starting though, I can assume other starters will be sitting out. With nothing on the line but pride against their longtime rivals, Reid has made a decision to sit starter Alex Smith in favor of Mahomes.

"The biggest thing for me is just to expect to go out there and win any way possible, if that's 300 yards or 100 yards or whatever it is", Mahomes said.
