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.

Playing against his former team for the first time since St. Louis released him in February, Atogwe was credited with only two tackles but spent most of the afternoon around the ball.

“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.”
