But the job security of Broncos rookie head coach Vance Joseph may hinge in part on Sunday, so Mahomes is likely to get a full taste of a risky and star-laden Denver 'D'. 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.

The Chiefs are resting starting quarterback Alex Smith after already clinching the AFC West and a playoff spot.
He went on to say he has no expectations for Mahomes and he just wants him to get reps and have some fun. "Whatever it takes to get a win is the biggest thing". Of course, Reid also declined to bench Smith in favor of Mahomes when the Chiefs lost six of seven games in the middle of the season. As such, they are taking this opportunity to give Mahomes his first career start. But if Mahomes play well, it could make the Chiefs a little more comfortable in moving on from Smith this summer.
