Patriots and Chargers Offenses Cut From the Same Cloth

Patriots and Chargers Offenses Cut From the Same Cloth

Brandon Mebane, a defensive tackle for the Los Angeles Chargers announced on Wednesday that his 7-week-old daughter Makenna died on Thursday, January 3rd after battling a defective heart condition, according to ESPN.

With a trip to the conference championship on the line, the Los Angeles Chargers are set to visit Foxborough this Sunday, and they've got one thing on their minds: Preventing what's been done countless times before and stopping the Pats from another deep run.

Mebane's daughter was born on November 12th but she didn't have a heart valve, which needed surgery. They also lost former Pro Bowl receiver Josh Gordon due to multiple violations of the league's substance abuse policy.

Amena moved with their two children to Omaha, Nebraska, for a hospital specializing in the care they would need. "It's still painful. I thank God every day and still pray".

Mebane told USA Tday for a December 21 story that Chargers owner Dean Spanos let him use his private plane to get there for the surgery.

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.
