Chiefs fans are hoping to see Patrick Mahomes vs. Broncos next week

New, comments

The Kansas City Chiefs beat the Miami Dolphins to move to 9-6 on the season. The win also clinched the AFC West title for the Chiefs, who will host a playoff game at Arrowhead this year.

We don’t know who they will play yet but in Kansas City the focus isn’t on the Chiefs playoff opponent. It’s on the Chiefs next game in Denver when Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs backups could be playing.

We haven’t heard yet officially if Andy Reid is going to play the backups next week but if nothing is on the line then he usually sits the starters. He could do that again — only if the Chiefs are locked into a seed.

Chiefs fans clamoring for Mahomes next week isn’t a shot on Alex Smith. For me, it’s the best of both worlds. Your starters rest for the playoffs while you get to see your future. I love being in this position.

Some Chiefs fan and media reactions to the potential of Mahomes next week....
