BALTIMORE (AP) - It didn't take long for Mark Sanchez to find out what New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan already knew: The Baltimore Ravens have a wickedly efficient defense.
Vying to become the Jets starting quarterback, Sanchez got off to a wretched start and finished with a flourish in a 24-23 preseason loss Monday night.
Sanchez's first pass was intercepted and returned for a touchdown. His second pass was nearly picked off. On his final play, however, the rookie threw his first NFL touchdown pass - a 19-yarder to running back Leon Washington with 5:50 left in the second quarter.
"Not the best start on Monday night, but I learned quite a bit," Sanchez said at halftime. "I just want to get better."
