Last week we were talking about the two teams that had an unblemished scorecard. Unfortunately, it wasn’t that the two teams were unbeaten. It was quite the opposite, both teams hadn’t had a win this season. Read more to find out who they were and how they are faring at the end of this week – still no score or did they end up with at least 1 win on the board!
For one player, in particular, it was bittersweet as their team went on to win their game, he made an amazing touchdown, and yet he was grieving with extremely sad news only hours before the game.
Marquise Goodwin’s Pain Hours Before His Team’s Victory
Well, this week it all changed for one of the teams under what was an extremely tough and emotional game for one player. The San Francisco 49ers won their first game of the season making it nine losses and one win. What was so poignant about this game though was that it was bittersweet for Marquise Goodwin.
San Francisco 49ers receiver, Marquise Goodwin, played what must have been the hardest thing he’s had to do in his football career.
Just hours before the game, he had to watch his premature son slip away. Despite that, Goodwin turned up to help inspire his lowly side to their first win of the NFL season. Not only did he do that but he did it in style when he scored an amazing touchdown when he picked up a great 83-yard pass for the longest play the 49ers have come up with this season. They beat the Giants 31-21 in their game on Sunday.
It was a touching and emotional occasion as he blew a kiss to the sky, dropped to his knees, and offered up a silent prayer as his team surrounded him.
After the match, he wasn’t available for interview, understandably so, but he did praise his wife as being “courageous and resilient”.
Sincere condolences to Marquise and his wife, Morgan, for their loss.
Injuries That End A Season For Some
Tyvon Branch, Safety for the Arizona Cardinals, tore his ACL in his game against the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday. Branch left the game in the first quarter but it means he’ll be out for the rest of the season as he undergoes surgery.
In the same game, Richard Sherman, Corner Back for Seahawks, is out for the rest of the season with a ruptured Achilles Tendon.
