Kansas City Chiefs To Start Pat Mahomes in Week 17


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

Kansas City clinched the AFC West with a win over the Miami Dolphins on Sunday and are locked into the No. 4 seed in the AFC.

Before the Kansas City Chiefs take another stab at postseason success, they will take a sneak peek into their future.

First-round draft pick Patrick Mahomes II will make his National Football League debut at quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs when they play an otherwise meaningless game against the Denver Broncos on Sunday.

India also clinched the three-match T20I series against Sri Lanka after winning the second match by 88 runs in Indore on Friday. On the tour of South Africa, India will play a total of 6 ODIs, which will be held from February 1 to 16.

Mahomes, the former Texas Tech star quarterback, was drafted with the 10th overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft after Kansas City moved up to draft him.

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. They are now on a three-game winning streak.

However Mahomes performs shouldn't have any bearing on this season, but it could reveal a lot for the Chiefs' plans next season and beyond. However, a lot of fans took to social media to express their joy at the news of Mahomes' first start. He also made a number of dazzling plays.
