The San Francisco 49ers would get their first victory of the season on Sunday. And wideout Marquise Goodwin would play a pretty big part in it. However, Sunday had nothing to do with football. Wins and losses didn’t matter in the slightest. Not for him, anyway.

Again, in terms of wins and losses, of course this doesn’t matter. The 49ers, however, would remove themselves from the winless teams conversation on Sunday. Now, only the Cleveland Browns remain.
But life is much bigger than football, than wins and losses. Our thoughts are with Marquise Goodwin and his family during this difficult time.
