MMQB: How the Chiefs' Defense Helped Turn the Season Around; More From Week 11

  MMQB: How the Chiefs' Defense Helped Turn the Season Around; More From Week 11 Patrick Mahomes hasn't been putting up the point totals we're accustomed too, but a healthier D has Kansas City back in first place. I’m sure Andy Reid wouldn’t have minded seeing Sunday’s game look a little different than it did. Maybe in a perfect world, Patrick Mahomes wouldn’t have been taking big shot after big shot from Micah Parsons, the NFL’s newest freak-show defender. I’m sure he didn’t want four of his offense’s first eight possessions ending without a single first down. And the turnovers he, or any football coach, could do without.

Mike Lindell blames the RNC for not being able to file a Supreme Court complaint that he baselessly claims would overturn the election results

  Mike Lindell blames the RNC for not being able to file a Supreme Court complaint that he baselessly claims would overturn the election results Lindell did not manage to get a single state to sign on to his Supreme Court complaint that he told supporters would overturn the election.Lindell earlier promised his supporters that he would get the lawsuit — which baselessly claims election fraud in the 2020 election — to the court before Thanksgiving. He has not filed the complaint, and instead uploaded a copy of it to his website on Tuesday. However, the complaint appeared to be missing key components, including the names and signatures of a plaintiff and counsel.

Representatives for Dr. Riley J. Williams III, and Trevor Noah did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.

Hospital For Special Surgery has since denied the claims made in the lawsuit. In a statement sent to Insider, Hospital For Special Surgery wrote:

"HSS received a complaint filed on behalf of Mr. Trevor Noah. We have shared with Mr. Noah's attorney a detailed rebuttal to the claims, which are meritless. Due to HIPAA we are restricted by law from addressing publicly specific aspects of the treatment of any patient. HSS is committed to excellence in the care we provide to each of the more than 150,000 patients we treat each year. This commitment has made HSS the world's leading academic medical center specialized in musculoskeletal health, consistently ranked #1 in orthopedics globally and nationally."

Court documents did not indicate that Noah had asked for specific damages.
