   QB Blaine Gabbert

      Gabbert, the third quarterback to start this season for the Cardinals, played well through the first three quarters. He completed 22-for-34 with 257 yards and three touchdowns, but two interceptions after the Cardinals fell behind in the fourth quarter hindered any kind of comeback.


Who Was Wired




I cost our team the game. Trust is a funny thing sometimes. When you can't gain a foot, you deserve to lose. Especially if you make the decision I made and the play that I called.
