WASHINGTON (KCTV) --- The Kansas City Chiefs used a strong second half to defeat Washington 31-13 to improve to 3-3 on the season.

Kansas City outscored Washington 21-0 in the second half after trailing early in the game.

Quarterback Patrick Mahomes connected on a two-yard touchdown pass to Tyreek Hill to regain the lead in the third quarter.

Darrel Williams' second touchdown of the game increased the lead to two scores. 

A second Mahomes touchdown, this one to Demarcus Robinson from 24 yards out, put the game away. 

The Chiefs jumped out of the gate with a 10-play, 95 yard touchdown drive that was capped off with a Williams touchdown run.

Three first half turnovers sunk the early momentum and Washington was able to take a 13-10 lead into the half.

Linebacker Anthony Hitchens and tight end Jody Fortson left the game with injuries.
