49ers Player Scores Emotional Touchdown Hours After Losing Newborn Son

"Please pray for the Goodwin family", he added.

Goodwin had Giants' corner Janoris Jenkins beat, and ran the last 20 or so yards to the end zone alone.

Goodwin scored a touchdown for the 49rs just hours later, blowing a kiss to the sky before collapsing in the end zone.

Quarterback C.J. Beathard connected with Goodwin on an 83-yarder that was the team's longest TD pass in 12 years and contributed to San Francisco's first win of the season. He then fell to his knees, where his teammates surrounded him. He added that he was "grateful for the experience and grateful that God blessed me with a wife as courageous and resilient as Morgan".

ESPN reported that Goodwin left the Niners' locker room as soon as the game ended Sunday to return to his family.

On Instagram, Goodwin wrote that doctors had to deliver their son prematurely around 4 a.m.

Goodwin and his wife, who Wednesday in February 2016, are both accomplished athletes, having both been track and field stars while at the University of Texas at Austin.

Before Sunday's game, Morgan had posted a photo of her husband on Instagram, along with this message: "Lord Jesus, give him strength as he step out on that field today". In September, the fifth-year National Football League veteran shared a photo of him and his wife kissing while holding an ultrasound image. "Despite our loss, my hubby kept grinding, scored his son a touchdown & got our first "W" of the season".

"I just wanna thank those who've genuinely prayed for (Morgan) & myself through out this pregnancy", he wrote.
