Wide receiver Marquise Goodwin got the first touchdown of the day for San Francisco midway through the second quarter.

Goodwin helped the 49ers earn their first win of the season, putting their record at 1-9. After beating Giants Janoris Jenkins and securing the catch, Goodwin blew a kiss to the sky before stepping into the end zone. As he scored, he sank to his knees in an emotional moment.

Just hours before the game, Goodwin and his wife Morgan lost their infant son due to complications after he had to be delivered prematurely. He said of his wife, Morgan Goodwin-Snow, "The pain (physically, mentally, & emotionally) that she has endured is unbelievable".

But local media report that Goodwin didn't linger after the game, leaving to be with his family. Meanwhile, thousands of viewers at home were unaware of the story behind Goodwin's display.

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".

In a devastating Instagram post with a picture of the baby's hand holding a finger, Goodwin wrote that his wife gave birth to the boy prematurely after a hard pregnancy.

Both Goodwin and Goodwin-Snow are career athletes; they were stars on the track team at the University of Texas at Austin. After that long pass, Goodwin fell to his knees in prayer as his teammates gathered around him. "He had a wonderful game today".
