Marquise Goodwin's emotional TD came hours after losing his son

One of the biggest plays of the day for the 49ers was the second quarter, 83-yard touchdown pass from C.J. Beathard to Marquise Goodwin.

The football star took to Instagram to share that their newborn son died Sunday morning due to pregnancy complications.

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. "The pain (physically, mentally, & emotionally) that she was endured is unbelievable", he continued.

The sporting world witnessed the San Francisco 49ers winning their first game of the season on Sunday.

But local media report that Goodwin didn't linger after the game, leaving to be with his family.

As Goodwin ran into the end zone, he blew a kiss to the sky. Goodwin has shown tremendous strength in his performance as a player, but also as a father and a husband, on Sunday. Morgan Goodwin, nee Snow, is an accomplished athlete in her own right; at the University of Texas, where the two met, was a nine-time All-American hurdler and sprinter, and was the 2012 World Junior Champion in the 100 meter hurdles. "Please pray for the Goodwin family".

After the game, Goodwin shared a photo to his Instagram account, including a message that explained what had happened.

I appreciate everyone who kept us in their prayers and constantly checked in on us. "But that's okay because we won't stop fighting and we won't give up on what God has in store for us".
