Philip Rivers tells story of Bill Belichick chewing out team during Pro Bowl blowout

Makenna was born November 12 with trisomy 13 - a defective heart condition that left her without a heart valve and required surgery to fix.

"You know, it's been a tough year, period, but she would want me to be here doing my job", Mebane said. "No matter where I am, I still think about her".

Mebane, a defensive co-captain, missed four games during the season while tending to his family, including last week's wild-card win over the Ravens. "She kept having bleeds from the stomach, and then when they tried to feed her, it wasn't good for her liver".

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. "She wasn't getting better so we had to make a decision".

"I'm doing pretty good", Mebane said. Still thankful [for having her in our life]. "It's still painful. I thank God every day and still pray". "I'm just trying to take one day at a time".
