Oct. 11 (UPI) -- Quarterback Josh Allen threw three touchdown passes and rushed for another score in a dominant win for the Buffalo Bills on Sunday night over the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Bills quarterback passed for 315 yards in the 38-20 win on the soggy field at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City.

"We didn't have a lot of plays," Allen told reporters. "We didn't have a lot of third downs or first downs, but we had a lot of explosive plays.

"Guys got open and made some unbelievable plays."

Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes completed 33 of 54 passes for 272 yards and two touchdowns, but was picked off twice in the loss. The Chiefs turned the ball over four times.

"You just have to take it on the chin and get better," Mahomes told reporters. "At the end of the day, that's what we have to do.

"There's still a long season left, but this is one that you're going to remember. That's a good football team, don't get me wrong, but we don't lose football games like that -- especially at home."

Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire injured his knee in the third quarter and was carried off the field by teammates. He did not return.

The game featured more than 800 yards of combined total offense and a halftime delay of more than one hour due to lightning.

Mahomes led the Chiefs on a 17-play, 56-yard drive to start the game, which ended with a 38-yard Harrison Butker field goal. Allen answered with a 9-yard rushing touchdown run to give the Bills a 7-3 lead.

Mahomes threw a 5-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Byron Pringle five minutes into the second quarter, and Allen connected with wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders for a 35-yard touchdown on the Bills' next possession.

Bills kicker Tyler Bass hit a 30-yard field goal for a 17-10 edge 3:13 before halftime and Allen found tight end Dawson Knox for a 53-yard touchdown pass a short time later. Butker added another field goal before the end of the first half and the Bills led 24-13 at halftime.

Bills safety Micah Hyde added to the lead when he intercepted Mahomes and returned it for a 26-yard touchdown midway through the third quarter. Early in the fourth, Mahomes threw a 1-yard touchdown pass to tight end Travis Kelce to cut the Bills lead to 11.

On the next possession, Allen led the Bills on a 12-play, 85-yard touchdown drive that ended with an 8-yard touchdown pass to Sanders for the final points of the night.

Knox caught three passes for a game-high 117 yards and Allen ran for 59 yards on 11 carries. Bills rookie defensive end Greg Rousseau recorded a sack and an interception in the victory.

"Buffalo did a nice job against us," Chiefs coach Andy Reid told reporters. "They were better than we were; way too many penalties and turnovers. It has to stop. ... too many longshots on us in the first half. We gotta take care of that."

Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill, guard Joe Thuney, cornerback Chris Lammons and Kelce also left the game with injuries. Reid said the team will know more about their severity on Monday.

The Bills (4-1) next face the Tennessee Titans on Monday Night Football on Oct. 18 in Nashville. The Chiefs (2-3) travel to take on the Washington Football Team at 1 p.m. EDT on Sunday.
