ST. LOUIS (AP) _ Mark Sanchez directed a turnover-free offense
and Bilal Powell ran for the first two touchdowns of his career,
helping the New York Jets end a three-game losing streak with a
27-13 victory over the St. Louis Rams on Sunday.

Chaz Schilens scored on a 25-yard reception and Nick Folk kicked
a pair of 51-yard field goals for the Jets (4-6), who were
outscored 58-16 the previous two games. The Jets overcame a
controversial practice week with several anonymous players quoted
in a newspaper report disparaging the ability of backup quarterback
Tim Tebow, who had a handful of snaps but was no factor.

Brandon Gibson caught a pair of short touchdown passes for the
Rams (3-6-1), who committed three turnovers and are in an 0-4-1
slump. St. Louis’ defense hasn’t forced a turnover in five straight
games, tying the NFL’s longest such slump since 1950 according to
STATS LLC.
