HBO’s ‘Arduous Knocks’ Will Showcase Dallas Cowboys And Dak Prescott – .
HBO and NFL Films turn to an old confidante for the next installment of Hard Knocks, the inside look at pro football training camps. The Dallas Cowboys will return to the series for the third time in a dramatic 2021 season this year.
Head coach Mike McCarthy’s inaugural season, who led the team, was expected to be a major contender in 2020, breaking a former Green Bay coach in the hot seat in a 6-10 record when Dallas was on either side of the ball last year fought.
The team’s offense suffered mainly from a serious injury to quarterback Dak Prescott. The versatile passerby was kicked out of the season in October when he suffered a complicated right ankle fracture that required surgery. He has now recovered, signed a huge new contract and will be a key to the team’s fate for 2021.
Team owner Jerry Jones, a volatile and hands-on presence, is likely to be an attraction on the series too.
The first Hard Knock episode for this season will air Tuesday, August 12th at 10 p.m. on HBO.
The Cowboys were in the spotlight again in 2002 and 2008. The Bengals and Rams were featured twice in the series. The LA Rams and Chargers split the series last year and attracted more attention than the regular season played to a few fans during the pandemic.
