Jets 27, Rams 13

Jets shake off week of loud talk

ST. LOUIS — For a few hours, Mark Sanchez had every right to feel good about himself and the direction of the Jets.

After a turnover-free day in a solid victory over the Rams, the beleaguered quarterback was the unquestioned No. 1. Sanchez believes this type of performance can become contagious.

"If you really take the positives from this game, build on those, continue to get better and improve, we can become a team that just doesn't turn the ball over," Sanchez said.

Sanchez was 15-of-20 for 178 yards and a touchdown, while Tim Tebow was a footnote as New York ended a three-game skid.

Bilal Powell ran for the first two touchdowns of his career for New York, which was outscored 58-16 the previous two games. The Jets overcame a tumultuous practice week with several anonymous players quoted in a newspaper report disparaging the ability of Tebow, the former Heisman winner at Florida who had a handful of snaps but was no factor.

So as the game headed toward the ninth, there was no doubt in Cash's mind that sending Cobb back to the mound was …

    Looks like LF Corey Dickerson is coming out of his funk at the plate — .186 average in past 16 games entering Friday. He had two hits Wednesday in Oakland and three hits Friday against the Rangers. Okay, one was an infield hit that bounced high in front of the plate, but the other was a long home run to …
