Chargers: The daugh­ter of de­fen­sive line­man Bran­don Mebane was re­mem­bered be­fore Los An­ge­les’ play­off game against the New Eng­land Patriots. The Patriots asked fans to stand and ob­serve a mo­ment of si­lence for Makenna Mebane, who died on Jan. 3 at the age of 7 weeks. She was born with a rare ge­netic con­di­tion known as Tri­somy 13 that causes de­lays in devel­op­ment and af­fects sev­eral or­gans. Bran­don Mebane had missed five of the past seven games, in­clud­ing last week’s wild­card game at Bal­ti­more, to be with his fam­ily. He was ac­tive for Sun­day’s game. Chiefs: A ran­dom act of kind­ness has net­ted AFC Cham­pi­onship tick­ets for a man called Dave who helped dig a Kansas City player out of the snow. Of­fen­sive lines­man Jeff Allen posted on Twit­ter that his car got stuck as he was head­ing to Ar­row­head Sta­dium to take on the Colts in Satur­day’s play­off. Allen says “a nice guy named Dave” got him back on the road. The Chicago na­tive asked his 21,000plus fol­low­ers to help him track down the Good Sa­mar­i­tan so he could re­ward him with tick­ets.

NFL: Sarah Thomas is the first woman to work an NFL play­off game as an on-field of­fi­cial. She was the down judge in Sun­day’s divisional round game be­tween New Eng­land and the Los An­ge­les Chargers. That’s a first, ac­cord­ing to the league’s Twit­ter ac­count. Thomas was hired in 2015 and was al­ready the league’s first fe­male full­time of­fi­cial.
