San Francisco 49ers’ Marquise Goodwin played and scored despite the death of his newborn baby a few hours earlier.
“Unfortunately we lost our baby boy due to some complications, and had to prematurely deliver him early this morning around 4am” Marquise wrote after his team’s 31-21 win over New York Giants.
