  • Patrick Mahomes to start at QB for Chiefs vs. Broncos

A two-year started while at Texas Tech, he declared for the National Football League after his true junior season. They are also locked into the no. 4 seed in the AFC playoffs regardless of what happens in Week 17.

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes (15) warms up before an NFL football game against the Los Angeles Chargers in Kansas City, Mo., Saturday, Dec. 16, 2017.

Rookie first-round pick Patrick Mahomes is going to get the start at quarterback, allowing Alex Smith to rest for the team's playoff game.

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.

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. Kansas City has gotten hot of late en route to winning three straight games after losing six of the team's previous seven contests.

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. That gives Kansas City fans the chance to get their first sneak peek at Smith's heir apparent against the Broncos.
