With the Kansas City Chiefs' playoff berth locked up, former Red Raider signal caller Patrick Mahomes will get his chance to play in his first regular-season game since being drafted this offseason. Mahomes will lead his Chiefs squad into Denver against their divisional rival.

The Chiefs have already clinched the division and a playoff spot, so this will be a relatively pressure-free game for the rookie. The Broncos are ranked as the 29th best pass defense in the NFL, which bodes well for Mahomes.

If Mahomes is starting, I can assume other starters will be sitting out. Still, this is a great chance for the ex-Red Raider to show what he has against NFL talent.

Alex Smith will be the starter next week when the playoffs start.

Bonus: Since the Kansas City Chiefs are playing the Denver Broncos, you can hear him play right here on 1340 The Fan.
