There aren’t enough snaps to go around for the Kansas City Chiefs five quarterbacks. At least, that’s what you would think.
Andy Reid said before preseason game on against the Seahawks that he would get every player in the game and the ones that dressed played. When you consider the fact that the Chiefs have 5 QB’s on the roster you have to figure that they aren’t going to get a lot of snaps. Where will they go from here? Here’s a look at where the QB’s are at after one preseason game.
When the first team offense took the field on Saturday Alex Smith picked up where he left off last season. The Chiefs drove down the field on one of the best defenses in the league and only had one third down. Back to back throws to tight ends not named Travis Kelce started the drive that ended with a Spencer Ware TD run of one yard.

Smith extended his only drive of the day with a roll out after a pump fake that faked the camera man out. As he rolled to the left he found Jeremy Maclin down the field and threw him a pass that flew just over his defender’s shoulder and got there right before the safety over the top had time to react. Maclin got both feet down at the one and the next play the Chiefs were able to score a TD.
The second drive of the game started from the KC one after a Marcus Peters INT in the end zone. Nick Foles came in at QB and found Tyreek Hill twice in the first drive. The first throw was complete but on the second route Foles threw the ball high and behind Hill. The impressive part of the incompletion was that Hill was being covered by Richard Sherman and he was able to get separation.
