About Hard Knocks: The Dallas Cowboys

The Cowboys enter the 2021 NFL season looking to improve upon last year’s third-place finish in the NFC East. In the second year under head coach Mike McCarthy, the Cowboys look forward to having franchise quarterback Dak Prescott back under center to lead Dallas’ offense, which features the likes of running back Ezekiel Elliott, and wide receivers Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup, and CeeDee Lamb. Defensively, new defensive coordinator Dan Quinn leads an impressive group that features Demarcus Lawrence, Jaylon Smith, and first-round pick Micah Parsons. Will the Cowboys finally get over the hump and bring the Lombardi Trophy back to Texas? Or will they fall short again in soul-crushing fashion? (hopefully the latter. Go Birds.)

A 30-person NFL Films crew will be at the Cowboys’ training camp in Oxnard, shooting more than 1,750 hours of footage over the course of the series. Camera and sound crews will have unencumbered access to players’ and coaches’ meeting rooms, training rooms, living quarters, and practice fields.

Despite the prevailing thought that camera crews cause distractions, ten of the last twelve teams featured on “Hard Knocks” have equaled or improved their win-loss record in the regular season. The Cleveland Browns launched the transformation of their organization on HBO and went from a winless 2017 season, up to a half-game (7-8-1) of a .500 campaign. The 2019 season saw the Raiders improve their record to 7-9 from the previous year’s 4-12 mark. Both Los Angeles’ teams, Rams and Chargers, improved their records in 2020 with two more wins from the previous year; with the Rams making the playoffs.
