What NFL team is featured at training camp on HBO’s ‘Hard Knocks’?
There’s an optimistic air to the Lions this summer, following a less than ideal performance last season, but hopefully the famed series will show us why.
Now in its 17th season, the famed docuseries will showcase a team that will be hoping to buck the trend of those who have previously appeared. That’s to say a large majority of the featured teams have gone on to post losing records.
What is HBO’s ‘Hard Knocks?’
Jointly produced by the NFL and HBO, the famed docuseries ‘Hard Knocks’ is now entering its 17th season and as per usual will be giving us an intimate look at the personal and professional lives of NFL’s players, coaches and staff. First broadcasted back in 2001 and widely regarded as the first sports-based reality series in television history, the show normally pays particular attention to topics ranging from family life and position battles, to the challenges faced by rookies and journeymen who are attempting to claim a starting spot and even practical jokes. With the exception of 2007 when the show was narrated by Paul Rudd, it has always been covered by Liev Schreiber.
Which team is featured in ‘Hard Knocks’ this time?
As we now know with the first episode having aired on Tuesday, 9th August, the featured team in the 2022 edition of ‘Hard Knocks’ is the Detroit Lions. That shouldn’t be confused, however, with the appearance of the Arizona Cardinals which is set for November in the ‘in-season look,’ a new format that debuted last year with the Indianapolis Colts. The Lions, will of course be hoping that they can avoid the ‘Hard Knocks’ jinx and do better than their 3-13-1 record from last season. If you’re wondering about the ‘jinx’ we mentioned, it’s interesting to note that nine of the 17 previous teams to be featured went on to post losing records.
