Mark SanchezMark Sanchez was the center of attention yesterday as the Jets went head to head against the Baltimore Ravens. Sanchez threw his first touchdown pass in what would be his first game as starting quarterback. Nevertheless the Jets suffered their second defeat of the pre-season 24-23.

All in all, it wasn’t the player’s best performance. His first pass attempt was intercepted by Haloti Ngata who carried out a great turnover play that ended in a 25 yards run and touchdown for the Ravens.

However, Sanchez showed what he is made of and reacted in the second quarter with a 19 yard pass to Leon Washington that culminated in what would be his first touchdown pass of his NFL career. Sanchez completed 3 of his 8 passes in two quarters of the game with a total of 43 yards.

The game was dominated by Baltimore on the first half as it was to be expected with their outstanding defense line. The Jets however got their game together and shortened the difference on the scoreboard near the end of the game. With 30 seconds of play left, third string quarterback Eric Ainge carried the ball for a gain of one yard into the end zone for a touchdown, leaving the game at 24-23.The Jets tried to go for the two point conversion, but an incomplete pass by Ainge awarded victory to the Ravens.
