Arians going back to Drew Stanton as Cardinals' starting QB

Arizona Cardinals coach Bruce Arians says he will return to Drew Stanton as starting quarterback for Sunday's home game against the New York Giants.
    
Arians insisted it's nothing against Blaine Gabbert, who started the previous five games, going 2-3. Gabbert was 16 of 41 for 189 yards, lost a fumble and threw an interception in Arizona's 20-15 loss to the Washington Redskins on Sunday.
    
Arians says he believes Stanton gives the Cardinals (6-8) the best chance to win. Stanton started two games earlier in the season after Carson Palmer broke his left arm and was placed on injured reserve.
