Chiefs Head Coach Andy Reid said Wednesday that rookie quarterback Patrick Mahomes will start the team’s regular-season finale versus the Denver Broncos. With the Chiefs locked into the No. 4 seed after winning the AFC West, the first-round pick will take his first snaps since a dazzling preseason. Reid added that Mahomes would get the first-team snaps in practice this week with Alex Smith leading the scout team. The veteran coach added he’d use the final game of the 2017 season to rest key starters and get other younger players besides Mahomes reps.
