Which might explain why Andy Reid and company have chose to give starting quarterback Alex Smith a break and start rookie Patrick Mahomes instead. They are now on a three-game winning streak. He hasn't played a single National Football League snap since going to Kansas City, but has excellent teachers around him in Smith and Reid.
Despite a lack of playing time this season, Mahomes says that he's become a better player while serving in a backup role.
Chiefs coach Andy Reid said Wednesday that the former Texas Tech star would start in Denver.
Mahomes threw 93 touchdowns and over 11,000 yards for the Red Raiders in three seasons. But he is expecting to lead the Chiefs to their 10th win of the season.

All North Korean nationals working overseas made to return home within 24 months, restricting a vital source of foreign currency. Secretary of State issued the following statement: "North Korea launched yet another intermediate range ballistic missile".
Mahomes has all the arm talent in the world and teams were salivating over the chance to get him in the draft. "Whatever it takes to get a win is the biggest thing". After all, the Chiefs traded up in the 1st round to draft him.
Nevertheless, there's been some speculation that the Chiefs will look to part ways with Smith this offseason and hand the offense over to Mahomes.
While the stakes for this game are low, a good performance by Mahomes would leave fans feeling confident in his ability to take over as the full-time starter next fall. He also made a number of dazzling plays.
