Defense, Running Game Leads Jets To 27-13 Win Over Rams
Bilal Powell had the most effective day of his career, rushing for two touchdowns and helping the New York Jets to a much needed 27-13 victory over the St. Louis Rams on Sunday.
Powell rushed for just 42 yards on 11 carries, but scored twice in the fourth quarter to help secure the win for New York (4-6), which got an outstanding effort out of its defense.
Despite early offensive miscues, the Jets' defense stayed resilent as they forced five punts and three turnovers, which led to 14 offensive points, while holding the Rams (3-6-1) to just 281 yards of offense.
Mark Sanchez managed the game well on Sunday, completing 15-of-20 throws for 178 yards with a touchdown pass to Chaz Schilens, who led the team with four catches for 48 yards.
Although Sam Bradford tossed a pair of touchdowns, he completed just 23-of-44 passes for 170 yards, threw an interception and lost a fumble in the defeat.
