Happy homecoming for Redskins’ Oshiomogho Atogwe

Redskins safety Oshiomogho Atogwe is certainly no stranger to the Edward Jones Dome, and he looked right at home in Sunday’s 17-10 win over the Rams.

“It’s always a pleasure to come back and play in front of the fans that supported me through six years of my career,” said Atogwe, a third-round draft pick by the Rams in 2005. “I definitely have a lot of love for them. Very grateful that we were able to come in here and get a win going into this bye. We worked very hard this past week for that.”

For a second time this season, Atogwe was paired in the defensive backfield with LaRon Landry, who returned to the lineup in Week 3 at Dallas. Landry played a role in three tackles against the Rams.

“It’s not the same defense as last year,” Landry said. “We’ve got a great front, we’ve got a great week of preparation. Speaking of last year, that’s irrelevant to me. This year, it’s a new regime and we’re ready to play.”
