Ogletree, who is from Queens, N.Y., had eight receptions for 114 yards and two touchdowns. He was the star of stars in leading the Cowboys to a 24-17 victory.
Ogletree's brother, Calvin Ogletree, was shot in January. Calvin Ogletree is recovering after being shot in the head outside his luxury rental car business in Queens.
"It was great," Ogletree said of his return home. "Just a good deal. I felt really good when I woke up this morning. I had great meetings, got to go see my brother, really good vibes today. I couldn't be more proud of the team effort."
Ogletree said his brother will continue to be an "inspiration in my life."Ogletree won the No. 3 job out of training camp last year only to lose it to Robinson, who was signed in Week 1, cut after a hamstring injury and later re-signed. Robinson parlayed an 11-touchdown season into a $32.5 million contract from the Jacksonville Jaguars as a free agent.
The Cowboys drafted Danny Coale, and Jerry Jones talked up Andre Holmes as possible replacements for Robinson. But Holmes failed a conditioning test to start training camp, and Coale was injured all summer. Ogletree got the job, and it appears, plans on keeping the job.
He had touchdowns of 10 and 40 yards, but his biggest play was the 15-yard reception he made on third-and-12 at the two-minute warning. It allowed Tony Romo to kneel down in victory formation three times.
“I don’t think I was the primary receiver,” Ogletree said. “It was something simple, something we’ve worked on for all the time I’ve been here. It’s a play we’re familiar with. Execution was huge throughout the game, and we had to execute there, and we did.”
