Refocused: Houston Texans 31, Arizona Cardinals 21

With Tom Savage Texans are not the offensive juggernaut the stats say they are With Tom Savage Texans are not the offensive juggernaut the stats say they are

Thanks to parity in the National Football League, the Arizona Cardinals and Houston Texans still have hope when they face each other on Sunday (10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET, FOX, DirecTV).

The Cardinals forced two turnovers - an interception and a fumble recovery off a strip sack - that led to points, and Blaine Gabbert looked impressive through the first three-and-a-half quarters, throwing for three touchdowns and no interceptions.

Both teams face an uphill battle in order to make it into the postseason this year, and a win in this game for either team could be the catalyst they need in order to go on a run and secure a playoff spot.

Arizona Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said Friday that quarterback Blaine Gabbert will start over injured Drew Stanton for Sunday's game against the Houston Texans. Between the four players who participated in the celebration, Ellington had the fastest 40-yard dash time at 4.37 seconds.

"It's very simple: I cost our team the game", Arians said, via postgame quotes distributed by the Texans.

Bella, 21, meanwhile opted for a white suit with a silver bodice and her hair pulled back in a sleek ponytail. And it's not the first time Bella has helped save Gigi from falling in the public eye.

By the end of the game, he threw three touchdown passes, a career-high for the seven-year veteran, but threw two fourth-quarter interceptions to go with his 257 yards.

Gabbert, 28, was drafted in the first-round of the 2011 NFL Draft by then general manager Gene Smith. Arians told reporters that Stanton, who has a sprained knee, will be Gabbert's backup if he can physically play. "I trusted Adrian, and we just turned too many guys loose up the middle".

"We'll be looking at some different receivers next week", Arians said.

The Cardinals also missed some chances on some catchable balls for a second straight game, which clearly had the attention of Arians.

The Texans (3-6) will start Tom Savage, but he didn't perform well during the 33-7 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in Week 10.
