For the first time since Super Bowl LV, Patrick Mahomes will get an extended period of playing time when the Chiefs visit the Cardinals on Friday night. Mahomes and the rest of the Chiefs’ starting offense is slated to play most of the first half. After getting just four snaps in Kansas City’s preseason opener, Mahomes will get significantly more reps with his retooled offensive line, a group that includes Orlando Brown Jr. and rookies Creed Humphrey and Trey Smith. Cardinals starting quarterback Kyler Murray will make his preseason debut after sitting out last week’s 19-16 win over the Cowboys.
According to Caesars Sportsbook, Kansas City is a 3.5-point favorite and the Total has been established at 41. We’ll be providing live updates, highlights and analysis throughout Friday night’s game in our live blog below.
