After the game, Goodwin revealed that his infant son had died hours before the game due to complications during his wife's pregnancy. He said of his wife, Morgan Goodwin-Snow, "The pain (physically, mentally, & emotionally) that she has endured is unbelievable". After that long pass, Goodwin fell to his knees in prayer as his teammates gathered around him.

Marquise Goodwin played with a lot of heart on Sunday.

The 49ers went on to defeat the Giants 31-21 to earn their first win of the season.

Despite losing his son earlier in the day, Marquise Goodwin managed to score a touchdown helping his team to its first victory of the season. Goodwin knelt in the end zone and then dropped to both knees after running for a 83-yard touchdown.

According to NBC Sports, Goodwin left the locker room quickly after the game to be with his family. Goodwin has shown tremendous strength in his performance as a player, but also as a father and a husband, on Sunday.

Goodwin shared the news in an emotional Instagram post, along with a photo of his baby's small hand resting on his father's finger.

"Despite our loss, my hubby kept grinding, scored his son a touchdown & got our first "W" of the season", she added. "But that's okay because we won't stop fighting and we won't give up on what God has in store for us". In September, the fifth-year National Football League veteran shared a photo of him and his wife kissing while holding an ultrasound image.
