Chiefs Will Start QB Patrick Mahomes On Sunday

Patrick Mahomes

Sunday will mark the first start for Mahomes since last November when he led Texas Tech against Baylor in his final collegiate game.

The Chiefs have secured the AFC West division title and are locked in to the fourth seed, so the outcome of the game is meaningless as far as playoff implications are concerned. So, it makes sense for starting quarterback Alex Smith and numerous other regulars to get a week off before the playoffs.

Mahomes, who was the Chiefs' first-round pick in this year's draft, completed 34 of 54 passes for 390 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions in the preseason.

That's because Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid made it official that Patrick Mahomes, the team's first round pick and rookie quarterback sensation, will be making his first ever pro start on Sunday in Week 17 at Mile High Stadium.

"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. Kansas City has gotten hot of late en route to winning three straight games after losing six of the team's previous seven contests. "Whatever it takes to get a win is the biggest thing". With that in mind, Reid chose to give the rookie his first start.
