Nathan (Nate) Stupar made a name for himself in the Falcons’ week 4 blow out win over the Houston Texans after returning a fumble 80 plus yards for a touchdown as time expired. On top of that memorable play, Stupar has added 14 tackles from the back up middle linebacker role and has two tackles for loss as well.

Stupar has been used predominantly as a special teams’ player in 2015 and has made great tackle after great tackle. Stupar has done everyone asked of him and deserves all the credit in the world for how he has played.
