ST. LOUIS -- Mark Sanchez directed a turnover-free offense, and Bilal Powell ran for the first two touchdowns of his NFL 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 two 51-yard field goals for the Jets (4-6), who were outscored 58-16 in their 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 wasn't a factor.

Brandon Gibson caught two 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 consecutive games, tying the NFL's longest such slump since 1950, according to STATS LLC.
