  • 49ers Joe Staley'Yeah I'm playing against Giants

After the game, Goodwin posted on Instagram that his son died after being born prematurely early Sunday morning. "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".

While 49ers players celebrated their first victory of the season, Goodwin left early to be with family, according to local media.

With the defeat of the New York Giants, the 49ers' locker room was exuberant after finally notching their first win 10 weeks into the season.

Somehow, some way, the 26-year-old Goodwin not only summoned the strength to play in the 49ers' home game against the New York Giants later in the day, but he scored an unbelievable 83-yard touchdown to help his team produce a 31-21 win - their first victory of the season. Before he crossed the goal line, Goodwin blew a kiss to the sky, then after scoring, he knelt, praying as the team surrounded him, ESPN reported. "He had a wonderful game today".

Goodwin shared the news in an emotional Instagram post, along with a photo of his baby's small hand resting on his father's finger.

"I just wanna thank those who've genuinely prayed for @morganakamomo & myself through out this pregnancy".

This wasn't the only big play Goodwin had in the game, as he also produced a big block on tight end Garrett Celek's 47-yard touchdown. "This was truly and an fantastic experience and it was also a tragic experience", she wrote.
