The Jets were shut out at halftime for the second consecutive week, but they didn't need to change quarterbacks to spark the offense this time around.
Greene finished with 77 yards rushing. Powell added 78 yards on the ground.
Greene scored on a 1-yard plunge in the third quarter, and Powell added a 4-yarder early in the fourth. Powell's score made it 17-3 in a game that looked every bit like one featuring two of the NFL's worst offenses.
"I tried to put extra emphasis on being smart with the ball," Sanchez said. "I thought it was a good, efficient day for all of us."
Tebow was healthy enough to serve as New York's backup quarterback in his hometown, but he never got off the bench. Tebow sat out the last two games while recovering from two broken ribs.
"I never felt comfortable enough to go with him in the wildcat," Ryan said.
The Jets ran it a bunch, too. They finished with 42 carries for 166 yards, including 26 for 116 yards in the second half.
"You've got to be the more physical team; to win in the NFL, that's what you have to do," Jaguars linebacker Paul Posluszny said. "Coming into this game, we felt like the Jets were going to run the ball; we didn't feel like they could beat us throwing the ball and then they rush for over a 100 yards. You have to give them credit. They were the more physical group, and that decided the game."
The Jaguars were inept on offense most of the day, no surprise given how they have played at home in 2012.
Montell Owens seemed to catch the Jets by surprise on a second-and-17 play, running 32 yards for a touchdown that made it 17-10 with 7:06 remaining. He finished with 91 yards on 14 carries.
But Jacksonville mustered little else, clearly hampered without leading receiver Cecil Shorts III and left guard Mike Brewster. Shorts (concussion) and Brewster (hand) missed the game, and their backups were less than impressive.
Bigger turning points came in the first half.
The Jaguars looked like they would get points on their opening possession, but Henne's pass was tipped and intercepted by Bart Scott near the goal line.
Equally gut-wrenching for the Jacksonville was Dwight Lowery's touchdown return that was overturned in the second quarter. Lowery picked up Jeremy Kerley's fumble and took it 62 yards for an apparent score that would have given Jacksonville a 10-0 lead. But officials reviewed the play and ruled that Kerley had touched Lowery down. The Jaguars punted five plays later.
Notes: Jets rookie WR Stephen Hill injured his right knee in the second quarter and did not return. Ryan said tests would determine the extent of the injury. "Hopefully it's not too severe," Ryan said. The Jets already have WR Santonio Holmes on injured reserve. ... Owens' rushing touchdown was his first since December 2008. ... Owens, CB Derek Cox and TE Marcedes Lewis all left the game for Jacksonville, but later returned.
