2 late interceptions mar an otherwise solid game from Blaine Gabbert

Arians told reporters that Stanton, who has a sprained knee, will be Gabbert's backup if he can physically play.

Johnson responded to deny any bitterness about the Cardinals - he was just mad that the coaching staff didn't put the team in a position to win.

"It's very simple: I cost our team the game", Arians said after Sunday's game. "Trust is a amusing thing sometimes when you can't get it to fit". When you can't gain a foot, you deserve to lose. Four resulted in receptions, going for 38 yards, but the two that didn't result in completions came in the form of a pass breakup and a crucial interception. Pederson opened the game with 13 yards on his first two carries, but he had nowhere to go after that, routinely getting hit deep in the backfield.

QB Blaine Gabbert will start over injured Drew Stanton for Sunday's game against the Houston Texans, Arizona Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said Friday. But two of the best pass-rushers in the league will be on display in Arizona's Chandler Jones (10 sacks) and Houston's Jadeveon Clowney (6.0 sacks).

The second was the first interception of the season for cornerback Patrick Peterson - not on one of the balls thrown his direction, as he had anticipated, but on a Deone Bucannon deflection - that gave the offense the ball at the Houston 15.

The Texans took a 17-14 lead over the Cardinals with 11:09 left in the third quarter.

After that, however, the Cardinals got into Houston territory just once more in five possessions, with Gabbert throwing two interceptions late and the fourth-down stuff changing the complexion of the game.

Blaine Gabbert's Arizona audition will continue.

Lamar Miller and Tom Savage connected for a touchdown in the second quarter of their game against the Cardinals.

"He saw the field extremely well", Arians said.
