On Nov. 12, an outside observer wouldn't have known that San Francisco 49er Marquise Goodwin had just lost his son. "And I think you guys could see the whole team was too", Shanahan said. "Please Pray for the Goodwin family.????" "Coming into the game, I really wasn't in it because I had just lost my baby".

The couple has received a tremendous amount of love and support since news came out about the death of their son.

Goodwin caught a 83-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter and imediately plunged to his knees in the end zone and raised his hands and face to the sky. "We didn't realize that sharing our journey with this baby would gain so many people (supporting)". I think it speaks more about her character than mine because here she is, she could be holding me back, she could make me feel guilty about having to go and play football, which is just a game in the grand scheme of things and what we dealt with was a real-life situation, a death.

Goodwin had a huge impact on the 49ers' first victory over the season, a 31-21 win over the Giants at Levi's Stadium.

"I just felt like it was all God in that situation I was able to score a touchdown", Goodwin said.

In an Instagram post, Goodwin revealed that his infant son died early Sunday morning following complications during his wife's pregnancy.

49ers coach Kyle Shanahan praised Goodwin for doing so well despite the emotions he had inside of him. The play helped set the tone for the game and was one of four touchdowns scored by the 49ers on Sunday.

Goodwin didn't just play against the Giants, he also contributed two of the biggest plays of the game in helping the 49ers to their first win of the season. "That's something as a coach you respect. And you could tell 'Quise meant it".

"He showed a lot to us, the tough guy that he is", Beathard said Monday on The 49ers Insider Podcast with NBC Sports Bay Area's Matt Maiocco.

Goodwin was clearly emotional while scoring the long touchdown Sunday.

Goodwin, who turns 27 on Sunday, offered advice on his call to others facing personal tragedies: "Never stop believing". "The reward will last longer than the pain". Goodwin also had an 18-yard run and delivered the block that sprang tight end Garrett Celek on his 47-yard touchdown.
