Andy Reid: Pat Mahomes will start finale for Chiefs

A two-year started while at Texas Tech, he declared for the National Football League after his true junior season.

Reid said with the Chiefs as 4-seed in the AFC playoffs, he would give him the chance to show what he's got.

Mahomes was taken at No. 10 overall after the Chiefs traded up with the Buffalo Bills, but has been forced to sit behind Smith, who has enjoyed a career year in Kansas City with over 4,000 passing yards and another Pro Bowl nod.

With the Kansas City Chiefs having the AFC West's division crown all wrapped up, head coach Andy Reid has decided that it's time to see what rookie quarterback Patrick Mahomes can do.


In fact, you know there will be fans calling for Mahomes to start the Wild Card game over Smith if the rookie plays well enough. Kansas City has gotten hot of late en route to winning three straight games after losing six of the team's previous seven contests. He's not expecting to put up those numbers against a strong Broncos defense on Sunday.

He went on to say he has no expectations for Mahomes and he just wants him to get reps and have some fun. He also made at ton of pretty throws.

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