TEMPE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -

Blaine Gabbert is out.

Drew Stanton is in.

The Cardinals will have a new starting quarterback Sunday against the New York Giants at University of Phoenix Stadium.

Bruce Arians said he made the decision after watching the game film of Sunday's 20-15 loss to Washington.

"It is no fault of Blaine," Arians said. "I think Blaine is going to be a hell of a player, but Drew already knows all those scenarios. He's healthy enough now and it's just a matter of getting those touchdowns that are there from experience, and trying to win this game."

"But it is no way an indictment on Blaine. I think he's played his ass off for [five] weeks," Arians added.

Stanton hasn't played since Week 9 against Seattle when he hurt his knee.
