Andy Reid has not put any pressure on Patrick Mahomes ahead of his first National Football League start this Sunday against the Broncos. When speaking to reporters, Reid said he has no expectations for Mahomes and just wants him to get some reps leading the offense.

The Kansas City Chiefs are locked into the No. 4 seed in the AFC playoffs, which makes their Week 17 tilt against the Broncos a game with no postseason implications whatsoever.

Reid declined to say who else might sit out, but he did say there will be enough starters around his young quarterback to ensure Mahomes gets a fair chance to succeed. In his stead, rookie top-10 pick Patrick Mahomes will receive the first start of his career.

Mahomes, 22, played in all four preseason games, completing 34 of 54 pass attempts with four touchdowns and zero interceptions.

Smith doesn't appear to be in danger of being benched, especially since the Chiefs have broken out of their midseason funk and won three games in a row.

The former Texas Tech standout and rocket-armed Mahomes' starting debut will also mark a great opportunity for red-hot offensive coordinator Matt Nagy. There's no guarantee that ends up happening. With that in mind, Reid made a decision to give the rookie his first start.
