The Kansas City Chiefs announced Friday that their starters, including franchise quarterback Patrick Mahomes, are slated to play the first half on Saturday against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

This could potentially be some anxiety-inducing news for many Chiefs fans.

On the one hand, it’s easy to understand that head coach Andy Reid wants his starters to get into a groove so they can hit the regular season at a full run. Yet the NFL season is a marathon, not a sprint.

The good news is that, with Mahomes in the lineup, fans are sure to see plenty of highlights.
