Mebane's daughter, Makenna, was born with a rare chromosome disorder and died January 3 after spending time in a neonatal intensive care unit in Nebraska, according to the Los Angeles Times.

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. "No matter where I am, I still think about her".

Anderson is a mild surprise, as the team will now go into the game with just two tight ends - Rob Gronkowski and Dwayne Allen.

Amazon is reportedly developing its own game-streaming platform
But as the wide-open field of game streaming picks up steam, it appears Amazon might see an opportunity to really become a player. No mention was made about a PC version of the service, unfortunately, but it sounds like it's still heavily under development.

The defensive tackle had missed four games this season so he could be with his daughter who was receiving treatment. Although the Pats had a solid regular season, which earned them a first-round bye, they dealt with injuries all year to star players.

Mebane's daughter was born on November 12th but she didn't have a heart valve, which needed surgery.

"She just kept having bleeding from her stomach, and then they tried to feed her, it wasn't good for her liver", Mebane said, holding back tears. "She wasn't doing much better, and they had to make a decision".
