The Chiefs defeated the Cincinnati Bengals 38-17 in the preseason opener on Saturday night at Arrowhead Stadium.
Patrick Mahomes and many of the starters played only one series as several players continued making their cases to land roster spots — including a hometown prospect from Lee’s Summit.
The Star’s A-team of Brooke Pryor, Sam Mellinger, Vahe Gregorian and Blair Kerkhoff hosted a post-game Facebook Live broadcast that is also this podcast episode.
