He shrugged off any personal feelings.
'' Gabbert said. ''Bring a little energy, bring a little juice to this football team. Like I said,''I just try to go out there and put my best foot forward, just take it one play at a time and have fun doing it because this job is too hard not to have fun. I think you saw that in the guys today, the way they fought and the way they enjoyed the whole four quarters of football was a great thing to see.''
Here are a couple more things to watch coming out of Arizona's victory:
STILL ON TOP: The Jaguars' winning streak is history, but they remain in the thick of the AFC playoff race.
Jacksonville is at home for the next three weeks against Indianapolis, Seattle and Houston. It closes with road games against San Francisco and Tennessee.
RUNNING BLAINE: Gabbert's ability to buy time with his feet was on full display, especially late in the game.
'' Jacksonville defensive end Calais Campbell said. ''He made some plays and extended some drives with his legs on third down. We are built on getting pressure and stopping quarterbacks. When you can extend it for five to six seconds,''I think the difference in the game was his mobility, it is hard on anybody.''
Gabbert was Arizona's second-leading rusher with 17 yards on six carries.
'' Gabbert said,''There were a lot of ups and downs in the fourth quarter,

He began the week among the league leaders with 11 1/2 sacks, but had just three tackles and no sacks against Arizona.
Other than a win, Campbell said he most wanted a postgame exchange of jerseys with Larry Fitzgerald. He got it.
JONES' DAY: While Campbell was mostly quiet, Arizona linebacker Chandler Jones had a big day.

'' he said. ''I'm not sure you guys realized, but I lost about 10 to 20 pounds,''I feel good, and I feel like a lot of credit is to that. I'm more agile. I feel like I'm faster, and I have more cardio.''
'GREEDY' MARRONE: Jacksonville got the ball with 1:14 to play at its 10-yard line. It tried to get in position for the win, but had to punt and Arizona got the ball back at its 39 with 16 seconds remaining.
Coach Doug Marrone blamed himself for giving Arizona that final chance.
I just would have ran the clock out and went to overtime,''If I had to do it all over again,'' he said. ''That is my fault.''
