"That's a great defense over there, and we're striving to be a great defense over here," said Jets linebacker Bart Scott, who followed Ryan to New York.
The Jets didn't get a first down in their opening three series, and Baltimore used a 43-yard pass from Joe Flacco to Derrick Mason to set up a 3-yard touchdown run by Ray Rice for a 14-0 lead.
Another Jets punt ensued, and Baltimore moved 62 yards before rookie Graham Gano missed a 46-yard field goal. Gano, who is competing against Steve Hauschka for the starting job, has missed twice in two games.
Following the miss, Sanchez finally started to move the offense. A short pass to Washington on a third-and-12 went for 16 yards, and a run by Washington for 15 yards on a third-and-10 set up the TD pass.
"I'm proud of the way he responded," Ryan said of Sanchez. "It ain't going to be perfect; sometimes you have these type of nights. You've got to give credit where credit is due, and most of that goes to their defense."
NOTES: The Ravens attempted half as many passes against the Jets (27) as against Washington (54) in the preseason opener. ... Baltimore TE L.J. Smith left in the fourth quarter with a hamstring problem. ... New York RB Shonn Greene got hit in the ribs, but Ryan said the injury was not serious
