TORONTO | Mark Sanchez threw a go-ahead touchdown pass to Braylon Edwards before hurting his right knee, and the New York Jets’ stingy defense finished the job in a 19-13 win over the Buffalo Bills on Thursday night.

Sanchez went 7-for-15 for 104 yards and a 13-yard scoring strike to Edwards that put the Jets up 16-10 late in the first half. But the rookie first-round pick was knocked out of the game when he injured his right knee diving headfirst on an 8-yard run early in the third quarter.

Jay Feely hit four field goals, including a 49-yarder, as the Jets (6-6) won their second straight game.

The Bills (4-8) struggled in the second half, when their offense was limited to 36 yards and four first downs.

After Rian Lindell hit a 32-yard field goal to cut the Jets’ lead to 19-13 with 5:28 left, the Bills were unable to muster a threat on their final possession.

Shaun Ellis burst up the middle to sack Ryan Fitzpatrick for a 10-yard loss. On the next play, Fitzpatrick attempted a desperation heave up the right sideline intended for Terrell Owens. The pass was underthrown, which allowed Darrell Revis to intercept it with 2:02 remaining. The Jets then were able to run out the clock.

Revis kept Owens in check, limiting him to three catches for 31 yards and spoiling a game which was billed as “T.O. in T.O.”

“I just try the best I can,” Revis said. “We know he’s a big-time receiver. I get that job every week.”

The game was Buffalo’s second in Toronto, part of a five-year, $78 million deal the Bills reached with Toronto-based Rogers Communications last year to play one annual regular-season game and three preseason contests in Canada’s largest city and financial capital.

“This is my first time going outside of the country. I got my passport for the first time,” Revis said. “It was a good time.”

Marshawn Lynch scored on a 15-yard run, and Lindell had three field goals, including a 49-yarder. The Bills have lost both games north of the border following a 16-3 loss to Miami last year.
