Power Rankings: Cardinals fly to No. 21

Another loss and the Cardinals probably can be written off, but they do play four of their next five at home, so there is a chance to pick up some wins.

Grading the quarterback play for the Cardinals

Though Blaine Gabbert has shown more long-term promise than Drew Stanton for a franchise that's in need of long-term stability at quarterback, his starter status against Jacksonville next week remains questionable.

Arians reverses, not to blame for Cards' loss

One day after Arizona Cardinals coach Bruce Arians shouldered the blame for a busted fourth-and-1 call that contributed to the Cardinals' 31-21 loss to the Houston Texans, he reversed course.

The Cardinals will stick with QB Blaine Gabbert as their starter this week as Drew Stanton's knee continues to improve, coach Bruce Arians said.

Cardinals WR John Brown has turf toe and DT Josh Mauro has a high ankle sprain, coach Bruce Arians said. Both may miss time, Arians added.

Budda Baker was everywhere Sunday for the Cardinals, registering 12 tackles, a sack and two forced fumbles. He's now the starting strong safety, and the additional snaps give him more opportunities to show his skill.

Arians shoulders blame for failed 4th-down call

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians shouldered the blame for Arizona's 31-21 loss to the Texans on Sunday because of a failed fourth-quarter play that he called.

Josh Weinfuss ESPN Staff Writer 

Cardinals rookie tight end Ricky Seals-Jones said catching two touchdown passes in Houston, an hour from his hometown of Sealy, Texas, was "memorable." His mom, dad, brother and brother's girlfriend were in the crowd at NRG Stadium. Seals-Jones, who played at Texas A&M and went undrafted this year, was "a little nervous" before the game but the nerves disappeared when the game started. "It's very good to make the last name on my back proud," he said.

Larry Fitzgerald, who signed a one-year extension through 2018 on Friday, wouldn't directly address his future with the Cardinals: “My only focus is on Jacksonville. We lost a tough one today and we got a really, really, really good defense coming in home this weekend. Two good defenses following them. We got to focus on that and that's where all my attention's focused.”

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians took the blame for Sunday's loss as Arizona's playoff hopes have all but slipped away.

Josh Weinfuss ESPN Staff Writer 

Change is coming to the Cardinals' wide receiving corps, coach Bruce Arians said after Arizona's 31-21 loss to the Houston Texans on Sunday. "We'll be looking at some different receivers next week," Arians said. A handful dropped passes helped doom the Cardinals and erased Blaine Gabbert's impressive performance.
