Chargers vs. Patriots: AFC Divisional Round final score prediction

Chargers vs. Patriots: AFC Divisional Round final score prediction

Chargers running back Melvin Gordon downplayed Sunday's divisional round playoff game against the Patriots as just the next team on the schedule, but he acknowledged the margin for error is thinner than against previous teams.

Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reported shortly after that Mebane's daughter died.

Makenna was born November 12 with trisomy 13 - a defective heart condition that left her without a heart valve and required surgery to fix. But New England has shown that they are not the same team that many are used to in the past, starting with signs of Tom Brady's regression and not having the stacked roster like in the past.




Mebane, who is in his third season with the team, said that he planned to play in the big game against the Patriots. She was initially doing fine, he said, but doctors found she also had Necrotizing Enterocolitis (NES), which affects the intestines of premature infants.

Mebane, his wife Amena and their two children Mahailey and Makai stayed in Omaha, Nebraska, receiving medical assistance after the birth of Makenna.

Holding their own through the last part of the 2018 National Football League season, the New England Patriots are an underrated bunch who must step up to prove they can get it down against a savvy veteran quarterback with some explosive offensive weapons.
