Chiefs Will Start QB Patrick Mahomes On Sunday
Before the Kansas City Chiefs take another stab at postseason success , they will take a sneak peek into their future. Patrick Mahomes will make his first National Football League start for the Chiefs, who have clinched the AFC West.
ProFootballTalk's Mike Florio reports there's a "growing sense in league circles" Jon Gruden will return as the next coach of the Bucs.
The Buccaneers won't be giving the quick hook to a second consecutive head coach after only two seasons.
Martin was suspended by the team for a rule violation two weeks ago and is nearing the end of another disappointing season, in which he's averaging merely 3.0 yards per carry, that began with a drug suspension. That, along with quarterback Jameis Winston still not playing as well as a team would hope a No. 1 overall draft pick to play, would be reason to think Koetter would be on the hot seat. Sure, their injury report may look significantly longer than the Buccaneers', especially with TE Garrett Griffin, OT Terron Armstead, and DE Trey Henderickson all being questionable to play with injuries, but I still say the Saints can cover the spread here. Tampa Bay controlled much of this game and kept the Panthers on their heels, but that wasn't enough to get the victory in Charlotte. "It's just so that teams know it's in the bad, so they'll play honest ..." You just don't understand that relationship in that quarterback room. He has thrown 47 touchdown passes against Tampa Bay, his most against any opponent in the NFL.
