Niners wide receiver Marquise Goodwin revealed after Sunday’s win over the Giants that he and his wife suffered the unimaginable loss of their newborn son in the early hours of Sunday morning.
Incredibly, Goodwin not only managed to suit up against the Giants in San Francisco’s first win of the season, but hauled in an 83-yard bomb from C.J. Beathard. When he reached the endzone, he dropped to his knees, pointed to the sky, and collapsed from the emotion of the moment while he teammates rushed to comfort him.
This is about as authentic a moment as you can see in sports, under terrible circumstances. Prayers for the Goodwin family.
Marquise Goodwin lost his newborn son just hours before Sunday’s game and broke down after his touchdown against the Giants.

I just wanna thank those who’ve genuinely prayed for @morganakamomo & myself through out this pregnancy. Unfortunately we lost our baby boy due to some complications, and had to prematurely deliver him early this morning around 4am. Although we are hurt, I am grateful for the experience and grateful that God blessed me with a wife as courageous and resilient as Morgan. The pain (physically, mentally, & emotionally) that she has endured is unbelievable. Please Pray for the Goodwin family. ??
