New York Giants headlines for Wednesday, November 4.

Good morning, New York Giants fans! Here are some headlines to follow your Wednesday morning.

Steve Tisch hopeful Jason Pierre-Paul plays Sunday

In the Giants' 52-49 loss to the Saints on Sunday, the defense struggled tremendously. Although the secondary was atrocious, cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie made a few big plays to help turn the tide, as well as Trumaine McBride and Jayron Hosley, However, the pass rush had no effect, as they couldn't get any pressure on the quarterback, Drew Brees. The Giants' defense couldn't get one sack, and hit Brees just three times the entire game (Robert Ayers twice, Johnathan Hankins once). Despite Pierre-Paul being out for the entire season up to this point and just recently re-joining Big Blue, co-owner Steve Tisch says the Giants will need him back on the field, and soon.

"This kid is working so hard to get himself ready to have an impact on the NY Giants defense," Tisch says ... "and we need him. We do need him."

"I hope he plays in the game Sunday versus Tampa Bay."
