Chiefs To Start Patrick Mahomes In Week 17

Kansas City Chiefs Rookie QB Pat Mahomes To Make 1st Career Start This Week

Reid says that Mahomes will start against the Denver Broncos this Sunday, according to reporter BJ Kissel.

The Kansas City Chiefs have the AFC West division wrapped up are locked into the AFC's No. 4 seed in the playoffs.

Former Texas Tech standout Patrick Mahomes will start for the Chiefs in their regular season finale against the Broncos on Sunday.

Kansas City traded up in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft to select Mahomes, who drew comparisons to Brett Favre, out of Texas Tech.

National Weather Service issues high wind advisory
Wind chills of -15 to -35° are likely through early Wednesday morning, especially along the Hi-Line and across northeast Montana. Watch ABC17 News for the newest forecast and timing of snow chances through the week and check back here for updates.

Smith's contract with the Chiefs doesn't expire until after the 2018 season, but if the team wants to move forward with Mahomes, cutting ties with him after this year would lead to $3.6 million in dead money against the salary cap in '18, not a awful amount to carry on the books. So, it makes sense for starting quarterback Alex Smith and numerous other regulars to get a week off before the playoffs.

Mahomes threw 93 touchdowns and over 11,000 yards for the Red Raiders in three seasons.

Many believe that Reid is quite high on Mahomes and his future in the league. He also made a number of dazzling plays.

While the stakes for this game are low, a good performance by Mahomes would leave fans feeling confident in his ability to take over as the full-time starter next fall.
