SAN FRANCISCO (WIS) - Any day is a good day when you get to start in the NFL - especially when you score. But Sunday, Nov. 12 was different for San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Marquise Goodwin.
Goodwin, the brightest star on the 1-9 football team scored a deep 83-yard touchdown during their 31-21 win vs. the New York Giants. As he entered the end zone, Goodwin dropped to his knees and looked up to the sky, and dropped his head again.
Not many knew that he and his wife, Morgan, lost their baby son hours earlier due to pregnancy complications.
He posted a photo on his Instagram before the game, holding the tiny hand of his son, with this message:
Goodwin returned to be with his family after the game. The 49ers have a bye week and don't have to return to practice until Nov. 20.
