FOXBOR­OUGH, Mass. — The daugh­ter of Charg­ers 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 Jan. 3 at the age of seven weeks. She was born with a rare ge­netic con­di­tion, Tri­somy 13, which causes de­lays in devel­op­ment and af­fects sev­eral or­gans.

Bran­don Mebane had missed five of the last seven games, in­clud­ing last week’s wild-card game at Bal­ti­more, to be with his fam­ily. He was ac­tive for Sun­day’s di­vi­sional play­off.
