Chiefs make QB switch for suddenly intriguing Week 17

On Wednesday, the National Football League shared what it said was Mahomes' five best moments from his preseason games. With that in mind, Reid chose to give the rookie his first start.

Reid announced he'd give incumbent starter Alex Smith the week off and start rookie passer Patrick Mahomes in his stead to close out the regular season. Mahomes will be able to get at least 1/16th of a season under his belt and show the coaching staff and front office what he can do with a week of game planning and a chance to lead several offensive series in a row.

With a deep lineup, no one player has to shoulder all of the pressure. "This is exciting. The Marlins dealt with the Giants and Cards and Stanton listened.

Mahomes played three seasons with the Red Raiders, capping his collegiate career by throwing for 5,052 yards, 41 touchdowns and 10 interceptions while completing 65.7 percent of his passing attempts during his final season at Texas Tech.

It's happening. And we're pretty sure Kansas City Chiefs fans couldn't be more excited. But it was a move Reid was willing to make with an eye on the future, when the 33-year-old Smith will either be too expensive - his contract is astronomical next season - or too old to effectively play the position. At 9-6, KC is locked into the AFC's four seed in the playoffs, regardless of whether or not they win at Denver on Sunday in their season finale. He's not expecting to put up those numbers against a strong Broncos defense on Sunday.
