  • 49ers' Marquise Goodwin reveals reason he was so emotional after scoring TD

Before the game, Goodwin was one of three players who took a knee during the national anthem.

Goodwin's wife, Morgan Goodwin-Snow, had a premature delivery at 4 A.M. that day, and their son died due to complications following the birth.

Morgan also spoke on the "tragic experience" in an Instagram post, letting her followers know the couple "won't stop fighting and we won't give up on what God has in store for us".

Just hours after losing their child, Goodwin suited up to play a home game against the Giants, where he caught an 83-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter. After scoring the touchdown during the team's first win of the season after nine straight losses, Goodwin blew a kiss and pointed to the sky, fell to his knees and made the sign of the cross as his teammates embraced him. He said of his wife, Morgan Goodwin-Snow, "The pain (physically, mentally, & emotionally) that she has endured is unbelievable".


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.

I appreciate everyone who kept us in their prayers and constantly checked in on us.

"Please pray for the Goodwin family", he added. This was truly an fantastic experience and it was also a tragic experience.

This wasn't the only big play Goodwin had in the game, as he also produced a big block on tight end Garrett Celek's 47-yard touchdown.
